Ottessa Moshfegh: Power, Cruelty and Savage Faith

With her striking new novel Lapvona, Ottessa Moshfegh continues to prove herself as one of the most exciting contemporary literary fiction writers. Unbound by genre, unafraid of darkness and unparalleled in her ambition, Moshfegh transports us to a feudalist village beset by natural disasters to explore the occult, the corrupting nature of authority and the vanishing veil between the natural world and the spirit world. Chaired by Glasgow-based writer Heather Parry.
