There is something sinister and disconcerting running through Ottessa Moshfegh's stories, something dangerous, fascinating and at times irresistibly funny. Her characters are unstable beings: they yearn for a gesture of tenderness and wish, in their own way, to become better people, but they all seem to be driven by the most primal impulses. Weak, twisted, often stupid and cruel to themselves and to others: from this strange raw material, Moshfegh manages to extract a dark, electric beauty, and in it, what we see is in fact our own reflection.

Nostalgia for Another World brings together his best stories, winners of the Pushcart, O. Henry and Plimpton Discovery prizes, with which he has become part of the literary universe of Flannery O'Connor and Angela Carter.
