Ottessa Moshfegh – Homesick For Another World

Out of stock


An electrifying first collection from one of the most exciting short story writers of our time.
Homesick for Another World is a master class in the the human condition.There’s something unsettling about Ottessa Moshfegh’s stories, something dangerous, yet delightful and even laugh-out-loud funny. Her characters are unsteady on their feet; they yearn for connection and betterment, but they are often tripped up by their own baser impulses. Part of the unique quality of Moshfegh’s voice is the way the grotesque and the outrageous are infused with tenderness and compassion. The flesh is weak; the timber is crooked; people are cruel to each other, and stupid, and hurtful. But beauty comes from strange sources. And the dark energy surging through these stories is powerfully invigorating. We’re in the hands of an author with a big mind, a big heart, blazing chops, and a political acuity that is needle-sharp. The needle hits the vein before we even feel the prick.
