Ottessa Moshfegh At Ada Books
(1.27) Good get for Brent Legault over at Ada Books, and he sounds pretty excited. This Friday, writer Ottessa Moshfegh will be reading from her new collection of short stories “Homesick for Another World.” (Facebook event page.)
The irreproducible Ottessa Moshfegh, shortlisted for the freakin’ Man-Booker Prize in 2016, will appear at Ada Books this month where she will read from her new collection of short stories, answer a few pertinent questions, sign the hell out of your copy of the book you will have just bought, and generally dazzle, bedazzle, and redazzle each and every lucky witness.
There is lots of love for this book. Michael Shaub of NPR writes, “There’s not a story in Homesick for Another World that’s anything less than original and perfectly constructed.”
And the book appears this week in the coveted ‘Highbrow/Brilliant’ quadrant of New York magazine’s Approval Matrix.
