Ottessa Moshfegh's six favorite books

Ottessa Moshfegh's books are Eileen, a novel that won 2016's PEN/Hemingway Award for debut fiction, and the newly released story collection, Homesick for Another World.

One of her six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Deep Ellum by Brandon Hobson

Restrained, dark, and strangely silent, this almost unbearably compelling novel reminds me how blood ties can cut as deeply and painfully as broken glass through the foot. If you've ever had a homecoming laced with sadness and longing, you'll relate to it.
