• "<b>Razor-sharp</b> short stories."

    Zadie Smith
  • "Moshfegh is consistently as sparky and gripping as she is inventive… <b>She could become one of the most outstanding US writers of her generation.</b>"

  • "The characters in this collection are an unlovely bunch but make for <b>an irresistible read</b>… She writes terrific, attention-grabbing openings, and impactful last lines that don’t strain for a lapidary effect. <b>Her damaged-girl deadpan snark is second to none, but she inhabits other character types with ease.</b>"

    Financial Times
  • "<b>She can really write and has a pitch-black sense of humour.</b>"

    Sunday Times
  • "<b>Moshfegh’s writing is cinematic – vivid, immediate.</b>"
