Ottessa Moshfegh: Lapvona Sun 11 Sep, 12pm
The bestselling author of Eileen and My Year of Rest and Relaxation, Ottessa Moshfegh turns her inimitable lens to a grotesque medieval fiefdom in her new novel Lapvona. Conjuring a cracked fable of an eerily canny world ruled by ideas of class, family and faith, it has been hailed ‘a brutal, inventive novel about the ways that stories and the act of storytelling shape us and articulate our world’. Appearing live via video, Moshfegh introduces her latest work to readers in conversation with on-stage interviewer Michael Williams.
