Reviews

  • Moshfegh expertly creates a world with its own superstitions and laws, both timeless and topical.

    Oprah Daily
  • Deliriously quirky medieval tale . . . Moshfegh brings her trademark fascination with the grotesque to depictions of the pandemic, inequality, and governmental corruption, making them feel both uncanny and all too familiar. It's a triumph.

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • Booker-shortlisted Ottessa Moshfegh is likely to out-weird most things published next year - set in a medieval fiefdom, could it be a work of genius, too?

    Stephanie Cross, Daily Mail, *Books to Look Out For 2022*
  • One of America's most celebrated authors continues her exploration of what fiction has to offer with a further digression from the standard realist purview and into fantasy... a fascinating premise, and I'm excited to see the yarn Moshfegh is able to weave.

    Chicago Review of Books
  • No one is quite who he first seems in the latest wicked tale from macabre master Moshfegh . . . Sculpting an eerily canny fabular world of contrasts and evil, cartoonish cruelty, in her signature way, Moshfegh conjures a grotesque, disturbing story of gross inequality and senseless strife.

    Booklist - Starred Review
  • Moshfegh is one of the most original and astute young novelists working today.

    Daily Telegraph
  • The superabundantly talented...Moshfegh's sentences are piercing and vixenish... she is always a deep pleasure to read.
