Homesick For Another World

Ottessa Moshfegh

9,99 € 9,29 €

This is one of my favourite short stories collections of the last few years and I think it deserves as much attention as her novels, perhaps more. Otessa is a master of a certain kind of darkness and her female characters are amazing.

Toni Morrison

10,99 € 10,22 €

8,99 € 8,36 €
