Ottessa Moshfegh is sharp, savage and hilarious. -- Isabel Dexter * Elle * The superabundantly talented...Moshfeghs sentences are piercing and vixenish she is always a deep pleasure to read. * New York Times * My Year of Rest and Relaxation is whip-smart, continuously compelling, and acerbic in all the right ways. * Daily Telegraph * Electrifying... [Moshfegh] is adept at crafting compelling female characters who violate the rules of femininity... Moshfeghs protagonist is an unlikely revolutionary. * Vanity Fair *
