Ottessa Moshfegh's "playful, shocking, wise, morbid, witty, searingly sharp second novel, Eileen (2015), has won her a ton of attention. In discussing the book with The Guardian, she dismissively said

"Eileen started as a fuck-you joke, also I’m broke, also I want to be famous.”

She's got a new book coming out this year called Homesick for Another WorldGet hip <3

Ottessa recently named Binary Star by Sarah Gerard one of her 6 favorite books, calling it "an astral journey into a gorgeous abyss in which all of humanity appears perfectly imperfect by starlight, and full of redemptive potential."
