Death in her Hands

On a walk, Vesta Guhl, the widow of a professor, finds a note that includes some lines about the murder of a woman named Magda. Vesta tries to investigate. The novel takes us deeper and deeper into the mental edifice that Vesta creates around the crime, until she herself ultimately loses her bearings. Ottessa Moshfegh »is one of the most willful voices in new world literature« [Die Zeit]. The author will be present via live stream.
