Lily King reviews Ottessa Moshfegh's EILEEN on the cover of the Book Review:
“Eileen is anything but generic. Eileen is as vivid and human as they come.”
“Moshfegh…writes beautiful sentences. One after the other they unwind – playful, shocking, wise, morbid, witty, searingly sharp."
"The beginning of this novel is so impressive, so controlled yet whimsical, fresh and thrilling, you feel she can do anything.”
“There is that wonderful tension between wanting to slow down and bathe in the language and imagery, and the impulse to race to see what happens, how it happens."
