《華盛頓郵報》評選「2015年最值得關注的小說」

「我叫Eileen Dunlop,現在你認識我了。我今年24歲,以每週37美元的工資在一間私人經營的少年觀護所工作,其實就是一間關少年犯的監獄。我都叫這間監獄Moorehead,因為Delvin Moorehead是我那個討厭房東的名字,用他的名字稱呼這間監獄正好再恰當不過。一週後我就要逃離這個鬼地方再也不回來,這就是我為何失蹤的故事。」

為了照顧酒鬼父親,Eileen白天在一間充滿恐懼及怨恨氣氛的少年觀護所擔任秘書,Eileen終日都在幻想可以逃離一切到大城市生活。每到夜晚及週末,她和名叫Randy的獄警聯手行竊,還要收拾精神狀況不穩定的父親的爛攤子。直到監獄來了一位美麗迷人的新顧問Rebecca,兩人奇蹟般的友誼也開始萌芽。直到意外離奇的故事轉折,她對Rebecca的情感帶領她走進一場難以挽回的犯罪案件。怪異、迷人的故事設定,類似雪麗‧傑克森及早期拉迪米‧納博科夫的風格,作者Ottessa Moshfegh一鳴驚人的處女作品,徹底顛覆你對犯罪小說的想像。
 
A lonely young woman working in a boys prison outside Bostonin the early 60s is pulled into a very strange crime, in a mordant, harrowing story of obsession and suspense, by one of the brightestnew voices in fiction 

"So here we are. My name was Eileen Dunlop. Now you knowme. I was twenty-four years old then, and had a job that paidfifty-seven dollars a week as a kind of secretary at a privatejuvenile correctional facility for teenage boys. I think of it nowas what it really was for all intents and purposes a prison forboys. I will call it Moorehead. Delvin Moorehead was a terriblelandlord I had years later, and so to use his name for such a placefeels appropriate.In a week, I would run away from home and never go back. 
This is the story of how I disappeared." 

The Christmas season offers little cheer for EileenDunlop, an unassuming yet disturbed youngwoman trapped between her role as her alcoholicfather s caretaker in a home whose squalor isthe talk of the neighborhood and a day job as asecretary at the boys prison, filled with its ownquotidian horrors. Consumed by resentmentand self-loathing, Eileen tempers her dreary dayswith perverse fantasies and dreams of escaping tothe big city. In the meantime, she fills her nightsand weekends with shoplifting, stalking a buffprison guard named Randy, and cleaning up herincreasingly deranged father s messes. When thebright, beautiful, and cheery Rebecca Saint Johnarrives on the scene as the new counselor atMoorehead, Eileen is enchanted and proves unableto resist what appears at first to be a miraculouslybudding friendship. In a Hitchcockian twist, heraffection for Rebecca ultimately pulls her intocomplicity in a crime that surpasses her wildestimaginings. 

Played out against the snowy landscape ofcoastal New England in the days leading up toChristmas, young Eileen s story is told from thegimlet-eyed perspective of the now much oldernarrator. Creepy, mesmerizing, and sublimelyfunny, in the tradition of Shirley Jackson andearly Vladimir Nabokov, this powerful debutnovel enthralls and shocks, and introduces oneof the most original new voices in contemporaryliterature."
