Eileen author Ottessa Moshfegh

The Christmas season offers little cheer for Eileen Dunlop an unassuming yet disturbed young woman trapped between her role as her alcoholic father’s caretaker in a home whose sualor is the talk of the neighborhood and a day job as a secretary at the boys prison filled with its own uotidian horrors Consumed by 35 stars If you didn t like The Girl on the Train you certainly won t like this If you re interested in characters over plot however this is another solid entry into a excellent year for psychological thrillers Eileen is one of the most pitiable and despicable characters I ve ever read she is not only neurotically self absorbed and insecure and suffering from severe sexual and emotional repression but she s also prone to feverishly obsessive behavior She lewdly fixates on a muscular guard who works at the prison where she s employed she casually wonders how much time someone would serve to be with a young boy who s incarcerated and she is all too eager to succumb to the charms of a beautiful new female counselor who is intent upon befriending her It s uncomfortable and often disgusting being in Eileen s head but it s absolutely riveting as well I think it s so interesting to read these portrayals of unlikeable and loathsome women we come in all shapes and colors and personalities and while there are a lot of anti heroes or men behaving badly who are the main characters in books as television and film it s much rarer to see the focus on a non sympathetic woman particularly ones like Eileen or Rachel who aren t glamorous seductive creatures The Amy Dunnes of the world are the secondary characters in these books and while this seems unpalatable to some readers these types of characters are much nuanced and realistic to meAnyway as a mystery this one s pretty straightforward and I wish the ending was stronger But as a character study this book is completely absorbing and fascinating

Resentment and self loathing Eileen tempers her dreary days with perverse fantasies and dreams of escaping to the big city In the meantime she fills her nights and weekends with shoplifting stalking a buff prison guard named Randy and cleaning up her increasingly deranged father’s messes When the bright beauti Eileen is nothing like the upbeat sassy song of old C mon Eileen Oh contraire She is mind shackled and deeply disturbed Reminiscing Eileen tells her story that begins from her early 20 s in a town she refers to as X ville in a nonchalant way telling it like it is The self loathing the daydreaming of love and escape the kleptomania the lack of hygiene A misfit haunted by self image issues No doubt a result from her upbringing and her emotionally distant drunk dad and her dead mother who sounds like she should have gone to the grave sooner But just when life is dull boring and lifeless in steps a coworker she uickly becomes enamoured with A friend who alters her life in a twisted and dark reality An engaging read This was a very different story Shocking at times yep I think my jaw dropped and at times my skin crawled with disgust Moshfegh has created some unlikeable characters but drives the plot in a direction that is refreshingly disturbing yet breezy 35
