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. * New York Times (on MY YEAR OF REST AND RELAXATION) *


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* * 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. * New York Times (on MY YEAR OF REST AND RELAXATION) *

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 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) * 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. Lapvona promises to chronicle the life of Ina, a blind midwife in a medieval village. Ina's talent doesn't stop at childcare, and allows her a special connection with the surrounding natural world. It's a fascinating premise, and I'm excited to see the yarn Moshfegh is able to weave. * Chicago Review of Books * 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. * New York Times (on MY YEAR OF REST AND RELAXATION) *


Compelling... Moshfegh's bold venture beyond her comfort zone in Lapvona is a welcome promise of how much more she has to offer American literature today. * Financial Times * Moshfegh's genius is her ability to rip away the veil, revealing the horrors beneath, in writing so compelling, and bleakly funny, that we can't bear to look away. * i Newspaper * Comically weird, amoral and antisocial... Lapvona's grotesque, shameless world shows us not how it used to be, but how it's always been. * Observer * 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.
