THE TIKTOK SENSATION Read THE razor-sharp satire that everyone is talking about... On the surface ,our narrator has everything you could want in life. She's young, thin, pretty, a recent Columbia graduate and lives in an apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan paid for, like everything else, by her inheritance. But there is a vacuum in her life and she's got the perfect solution. She's going to take a year under sedation to relax and hide away from the world. What could possibly go wrong? Blackly funny, merciless and compassionate, My Year of Rest and Relaxation, is the perfect read for fans of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

The book that everybody's talking about... I read it and was entranced. * The Times * This is the first book I couldn't put down this year... Almost offensive with its close-to-the-bone truths, it's shockingly relatable. And legitimately laugh-out-loud funny. Ottessa Moshfegh is sharp, savage and hilarious. -- Isabel Dexter * Elle * The superabundantly talented...Moshfegh's sentences are piercing and vixenish... she is always a deep pleasure to read. * New York Times * My Year of Rest and Relaxation is whip-smart, continuously compelling, and acerbic in all the right ways. * Daily Telegraph * Electrifying... [Moshfegh] is adept at crafting compelling female characters who violate the rules of femininity... Moshfegh's protagonist is an unlikely revolutionary. * Vanity Fair *
