Event description
Ottessa Moshfegh, author of My Year of Rest and Relaxation, will introduce her highly anticipated new novel, Lapvona.

About this event

Little Marek is motherless. He has little to his name but a father who abuses him and an unlikely friendship in Ina, the midwife who nursed him. But Ina’s gifts extend far beyond childcare: she possesses an ability to communicate with the natural world. When the fiefdom is buffeted by biblical disasters, and the rich get richer while the poor trade food for psychedelic mushrooms, Marek finds himself in a power struggle of medieval cruelty, and his faith in God is put to the ultimate test.

Lapvona is Moshfegh’s fourth novel. Her debut, Eileen, was shortlisted for the Booker prize. Her widely acclaimed novel My Year of Rest and Relaxation, about a character who holes herself up in her New York apartment, gained a special resonance during lockdown. Join her for a discussion of her newest book, a pitch-black take on the world of fairytales. She will also be answering your questions.

Running time: 60 minutes
