Winner of The Paris Review’s Plimpton Prize for some of her first stories, and of the PEN Hemingway Prize for her debut novel Eileen, Ottessa Moshfegh reads from Homesick for Another World, her first collection of stories—one of which has already won an O. Henry Prize.
In the judges’ citation for the Plimpton Prize, Jeffrey Eugenides wrote: “What distinguishes Ottessa Moshfegh’s writing is that unnamable quality that makes a new writer’s voice, against all odds and the deadening surround of lyrical postures, sound unique.”
