- Author name: Ottessa Moshfegh
- Date published: 2015

A literary thriller, Ottessa Moshfegh’s “Eileen” is darkly comedic in the same vein as much of Shirley Jackson’s work. It follows the titular character Eileen, a deeply disturbed secretary at a boy’s prison, who spends her days caring for her alcoholic father. When a new counselor, Rebecca Saint John, shows up at the prison, a fiery passion is unearthed in Elieen, a passion that eventually leads to a grisly crime.
