NOVEL OF THE MONTH
Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh
This dark and gripping pyschological crime drama is one of the most intriguing titles on this years Man Booker shortlist.
Eileen Dunlop is trapped between caring for her alcoholic father and her job as a secretary at the boys’ prison. Her nights and weekends are filled with shoplifting and cleaning up her increasingly deranged father’s messes.
When the beautiful, charismatic Rebecca Saint John arrives on the scene as the new counsellor at the prison, Eileen is enchanted. But soon, Eileen’s affection for Rebecca will pull her into a crime that far surpasses even her own wild imagination.
