Margins. Ottessa Moshfegh gives voice to characters who live on the margins of society in her collection of fourteen short stories titled, Homesick for Another World. I reveled in her wit, especially when the humor is dark. There were many sentences I read more than once, so I could savor them. Readers who enjoy short stories will find very finely crafted stories in this collection. Anyone who gains comfort from the flaws of others will share the glee with Moshfegh as she draws us into lives not very similar to our own, but true to ourselves at our very core. This is our world, like it or not.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
