Anmeldelser

«The book that everybody’s talking aboutI read it and was entranced

The Times

«This is the first book I couldn’t put down this year… Almost offensive with its close-to-the-bone truths, it’s shockingly relatable. And legitimately laugh-out-loud funny. Ottessa Moshfegh is sharp, savage and hilarious. »

Isabel Dexter, Elle

«The superabundantly talented...Moshfegh’s sentences are piercing and vixenish she is always a deep pleasure to read

New York Times

«My Year of Rest and Relaxation is whip-smart, continuously compelling, and acerbic in all the right ways

Daily Telegraph

«Electrifying... [Moshfegh] is adept at crafting compelling female characters who violate the rules of femininity... Moshfegh’s protagonist is an unlikely revolutionary

Vanity Fair
