McGlue

Ottessa Moshfegh

Discover the blistering first novella from the from the Booker-shortlisted author of Eileen and My Year of Rest and Relaxation.

They said I’ve done something wrong?… And they’ve just left me down here to starve. Haven’t had a drop in days more so…

Salem, Massachusetts, 1851- McGlue is in the hold, still too drunk to be sure of his name or situation or orientation - he may have killed a man. That man may have been his best friend. Now, McGlue wants one thing and one thing only - a drink. Because for McGlue, insufferable, terrifying memories accompany sobriety. Asail on the high seas of literary tradition, Ottessa Moshfegh gives us an unforgettable blackguard on a knife-sharp voyage through the fogs of recollection.
