Ottessa Moshfegh - Celebrated Novelist Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures

When: Mon., Feb. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2019

When discussing her controversial novel Eileen, author Ottessa Moshfegh revealed that it started out as a joke, a bold gesture executed in a time when she was broke and wanted to be famous. The joke paid off. Eileen was shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Man Booker Prize and won the PEN/Hemingway Award for debut fiction. Now Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures welcomes the award-winning author to the Carnegie Music Hall to discuss her second novel My Year of Rest and Relaxation, a New York Times bestseller about a young Manhattanite trying to find meaning in her empty, uber-privileged existence.

Price: $15-35
