Ottessa Moshfegh
In conversation with Amanda Stern

Set in Salem, Massachusetts, 1851—the same year as the publication of Moby DickMcGlue follows the foggy recollections of a hard-drinking seafarer who may or may not have killed his best friend. Discussing her sharply observational body of work that illuminates the exhilaratingly dark psychologies of wayward characters, Moshfegh will share the stage with Amanda Stern, the author of Little Panic, a fiercely funny new memoir on anxiety.
