Otessa Moshfegh 

When: Thu., July 12, 7:30 p.m. 2018
Price: free
Award-winning New England author Ottessa Moshfegh’s newest novel, My Year of Rest and Relaxation, is a darkly funny tale of a 20-something woman attempting to cure her misery with a year of sleeping. She has it all — Angelina Jolie-esque beauty, a degree from Columbia University, an easy art gallery job, an inheritance that pays for her apartment in Manhattan — but the loss of her parents, among other things, has left her feeling empty. Whereas a good psychiatrist would probably help her work through her grief consciously instead of enabling her to sleep through it, her psychiatrist is not a good one. The eccentric Dr. Tuttle prescribes the unnamed narrator the sleeping pills she needs to make her desired hibernation from the world happen. But through her self-imposed alienation, she may just rediscover herself. Meet Moshfegh at Pegasus Books, where she will discuss and sign copies of her enthralling new novel.
