Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh, a debut novel and winner of the 2016 PEN/Hemingway debut fiction award.
A lonely young woman working in a boys’ prison outside Boston in the early 60s is pulled into a very strange crime, in a mordant, harrowing story of obsession and suspense, by one of the brightest new voices in fiction.
“This story is as dark as they come but with its fascinating title character and disturbing plot, I couldn’t put it down. Not for everyone – but if you like your books bleak and twisted – this one is for you!”
