The Wire | Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh



Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh

I finally got the chance to read Ottessa Moshfegh's Eileen while visiting my in-laws in South Florida, and it did not disappoint. A dark character study of a young woman growing into her own skin, the setting—New England around Christmastime—was equally rich and contributed a terrific sense of mood and enclosure.

 

 

 

 

"What else do you have in your purse, Eileen?" she asked. I didn't catch her sarcasm at first.
"Lipstick," I answered.
