An Evening with Ottessa Moshfegh
Friday 26th May 18:30 at London - Tottenham Court Road
We’re welcoming Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author, and one of Granta's Best Young American Novelists, Ottessa Moshfegh to celebrate the UK release of her novella McGlue. Hear Ottessa in conversation with Lucy Scholes before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of her books.
'They said I've done something wrong?... And they've just left me down here to starve. Haven't had a drop in days more so...'. Salem, Massachusetts, 1851: McGlue is in the hold, still too drunk to be sure of his name or situation or orientation - he may have killed a man. That man may have been his best friend. Now, McGlue wants one thing and one thing only: a drink. Because for McGlue, insufferable, terrifying memories accompany sobriety. A-sail on the high seas of literary tradition, Ottessa Moshfegh gives us an unforgettable blackguard on a knife-sharp voyage through the fogs of recollection.'
