Review of: Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh

Teresa Steele-

Eileen is a nobody. She works for a boy’s correction facility, lives with her alcoholic father, and has no friends. She spends her time stalking a guard that works at the facility, shoplifting, and dreaming of leaving her small town for a bigger city. When Rebecca St. James enters her life, as the new educator at the correctional facility, Eileen will do whatever it takes to befriend her, even if it involves helping Rebecca commit a crime. Moshfegh writes in a such a stark manner, that you can’t help but feel as though you are there with Eileen.
