Dormir por um ano para acordar renovadíssima para uma vida nova depois, quem não quer?
.
Essa é a ideia da protagonista de 'Meu Ano de Descanso e Relaxamento', livro da norte-americana Ottessa Moshfegh, traduzido por @julianacunha e lançado pela @todavialivros - o escolhido da @larisaram para o #ClubedoLivroLamparina de hoje
.
A obra tem uma costura de temas diversos: o comportamento ególatra dos jovens artistas do hype, as consequências do mito da beleza nas mulheres, homens héteros-egoístas que não conseguem desenvolver uma conexão com suas parceiras, a real crueldade com que julgamos os outros dentro de nossas cabeças...Muitas, muitas coisas para observar e trocar ideias!
.
Mas queremos destacar um ponto que é essa onda de 'vamos nos alienar para sermos mais felizes', que rolou nas últimas semanas aqui no insta. Tá bom, gente, não tá fácil viver nesse mundo ~ estranho ~ de hoje (no Brasil, então, nem se fale!). Dá vontade de ignorar tudo, hibernar e acordar só daqui uns 10 anos. Mas vamos falar a real? Fugir dos problemas nunca foi a solução ideal, certo? Vamos respirar juntxs, nos blindar de conhecimento e fazer o nosso melhor para transformar a realidade. É proibido cochilar 🙃

☀️ July wrap up. A month full of really good books, on the whole. I read 8 and felt like I engaged with them all properly without rushing. Highlights were Paul Takes The Form of a Mortal Girl, Separate and Dominate, Salt Slow and On Earth, We’re Briefly Gorgeous. A lot of Picadors, a lot of queer authors/subjects. A good month!

I have a new figure to share!! Here’s your sneak peak 👀
The full drawing (I’ll be posting it later this week) is super inspired by Jacques Louis David and the cover art for “My Year of Rest and Relaxation.”

“Non so indicare un evento specifico che mi aveva portato alla decisione di andare in letargo. All’inizio volevo solo un po’ di calmanti per cancellare pensieri e giudizi perché con la loro raffica continua facevo fatica a non odiare tutti e tutto. Pensavo che la vita sarebbe stata più tollerabile se il mio cervello fosse stato più lento nel condannare il mondo che mi circondava.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Non c’è un motivo per cui la protagonista di “Il mio anno di riposo e oblio” decide di imbottirsi di sonniferi. O meglio, ci sono mille piccoli motivi: la perdita di interesse per la quotidianità, l’assenza di legami affettivi stabili, il rapporto complesso con i genitori morti. Abbiamo una ragazza ricca e privilegiata - che può comprarsi tutto, tranne la felicità. E così, complice una psichiatra che meriterebbe la radiazione dall’albo, inizia a comprare farmaci e a combinarli in mille modi. L’obiettivo è riuscire a dormire per un anno intero, vivendo il minimo necessario per sopravvivere.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
La depressione raccontata in queste pagine meriterebbe ben più spazio rispetto a quanto si possa fare su Instagram - ma vorrei soffermarmi su due punti. Uno è Reva, l’unica amica della protagonista - anch’essa insicura e disturbata, incapace di farsi valere e bisognosa di attenzioni. Reva è uno di quei personaggi che prenderesti a pugni per tutto il libro, potendo - eppure nell’ultima pagina del libro, adorata da @lettricegeniale , finalmente Reva trova un riscatto - per quanto tragico.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
L’altro aspetto interessante del libro è la psichiatra - e qui potremmo scrivere un poema. Distratta, incoerente, inconcludente, pronta a aggirare il sistema e le assicurazioni - per tutto il libro ignora quello che sta realmente succedendo alla nostra protagonista. È un mostro, ma è anche un monito per tutta la professione medica e sanitaria.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ho amato questo libro? No, anzi: l’ho odiato, a volte l’ho letto solo per volerlo finire, per allontanarmene il più possibile. Ma forse era proprio questo l’obiettivo.

“Furthermore, as is typical for any isolated, intelligent young person, I thought I was the only one with any consciousness, any awareness of how odd it was to be alive, to be a creature on this strange planet Earth.” #OtessaMoshfegh

Currently reading: My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Otessa Moshfegh | Nothing screams “relaxation” to me more than a grey, rainy day and a good book. Throw in a bit of nail painting and a face mask, and that’s my self-care. I love days like this, it feels so cozy. 🥰 So happy to rejoice in the small things. Thank you to @vintagebooks for the finished reading copy 😊 | what does relaxation look like to you?

“Caffeine was my exercise.” I treated myself yesterday to a new book and the decadence of finishing it all in one day. Moshfegh’s characters are horrible, self-involved and very very funny. NYC at the millennium’s end is full of people shrinkwrapped tight in their complacency. The disaffected narrator finds a slapdash psychiatrist who supplies her with a cocktail of sleeping pills and antidepressants, few questions asked, so that she can check out of life. It’s a willful abnegation of feeling where the strongest emotion is contempt, and it’s hard to blame her. It’s also hard to explain why its so enjoyable - It’s bracing, caustic and chilly like a big slap of seawater up the nose. I liked it the same way I liked The Pisces, with awe and disgust and delight. 💔💊🚬

Well, this was really bizarre. I hated #eileen, but this one I kind of liked, despite it basically being as pointless as the title suggests: rich(ish) New York orphan takes a massive cocktail of pharmaceuticals and basically sleeps for a year, with occasional flustered and panicky (mis) adventures. It's hard to tell whether this was actually a parody; it would certainly work as one. But there's a lightness in the writing that worked for me, and a self-awareness in the narrative which somehow made it less strange. I'd read it again if I knew how I was going to feel about it beforehand, and I know if I re-read it I wouldn't understand it any more than I did this time!

Listened to this on @audible and I can’t say I found joy in it or that I would recommend it as per ‘ouh, i loved this, you might.’ But I can 100% say it was time well spent for me. This book was worth my time and I really appreciate that it exists.
I wasn’t exactly sure what to say about it so I went to read other reviews online. Many people were angry, saying its plot lagged, it went nowhere, it was a waste of time/words, it took a fantastic premise and nose-dived with it, etc. I personally enjoyed its pace. Some hated that the main characters were ‘unlikeable’, but what was more prominent and important to me was that they were convincing. Written so well. Jia Tolentino of the new yorker called Moshfegh a most interesting writer on the subject of being alive when being alive feels terrible. That was the gem of this book for me.
.
There were no lines I felt like bookmarking (underlining if i were reading the print) which is rare for a book I actually found worth my time.
But I found Dr Tuttle very funny, the right serving of humour that helped you stare at the portrait of the protagonist’s life with a little ease. The protagonist’s thoughts about art and the art world mirror mine, I dare say, precisely. At the end of the day, I will miss our protagonist and if she had a twitter account I would bookmark it to come back to every now and then. 🤷🏾‍♀️
.
I feel less and less mentally dishevelled the more rest I get in my life so I don’t see myself craving a re-read anytime soon but I can definitely see how this book is a perfect mood for certain mind frames. It’s really perfect at what it is.

Review: 'McGlue' by Otessa Moshfegh.....This was an emotionally intense novella about a man coming to his senses about actions he had taken while drinking the previous night. Although set in Salem, Massachusetts in the mid 1800s, the theme is timeless, unfortunately.

En ung kvinne i New York vil nærmest gå i dvale med reseptbelagte medisiner. På overflaten er hun vellykket, med utdanning, jobb, leilighet. Men hun ser ingen glede i tilværelsen, og vil bare sove. Hun går til tidenes dårligste psykolog og sier hun har søvnproblemer. Etter hvert eksperimenterer hun med diverse heftige sovemedisiner og andre medikamenter. Kan man bruke søvn som selvhjelp? 
En fascinerende hovedperson! Temmelig dyster stemning, men hint av beksvart humor. Og den fikk meg til å tenke. Men det er vanskelig å formulere noe klokt om hva slags budskap den kan ha. Tror den vil appellere til lesere som liker tematikken depresjon. #boktips #lesetips #lesersørvis #favorittbok #leseropplevelse #otessamoshfegh #myyearofrestandrelaxation

Jeune, belle, riche, fraîchement diplômée de l’université de Columbia, l’héroïne du roman de la Rentrée Littéraire – « Mon année de repos et de détente » d’Ottessa Moshfegh décide de tout plaquer pour entamer une longue hibernation en s’assommant de somnifères.
Un récit hilarant qui est aussi une charge au vitriol contre les travers de notre époque.

« J’avais commencé à hiberner tant bien que mal à la mi-juin de l’an 2000. J’avais vingt-six ans... J’ai pris des cachets à haute dose et je dormais jour et nuit, avec des pauses de deux à trois heures. Je trouvais ça bien. Je faisais enfin quelque chose qui comptait vraiment. Le sommeil me semblait productif. Quelque chose était en train de se mettre en place. En mon for intérieur, je savais – c’était peut-être la seule chose que mon for intérieur ait sue à l’époque – qu’une fois que j’aurais assez dormi, j’irais bien. Je serais renouvelée, ressuscitée... Ma vie passée ne serait qu’un rêve, et je pourrais sans regret repartir de zéro, renforcée par la béatitude et la sérénité que j’aurais accumulées pendant mon année de repos et de détente. »

“Non so indicare un evento specifico che mi aveva portato alla decisione di andare in letargo. All’inizio volevo solo un po’ di calmanti per cancellare pensieri e giudizi perché con la loro raffica continua facevo fatica a non odiare tutti e tutto. Pensavo che la vita sarebbe stata più tollerabile se il mio cervello fosse stato più lento nel condannare il mondo che mi circondava.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Non c’è un motivo per cui la protagonista di “Il mio anno di riposo e oblio” decide di imbottirsi di sonniferi. O meglio, ci sono mille piccoli motivi: la perdita di interesse per la quotidianità, l’assenza di legami affettivi stabili, il rapporto complesso con i genitori morti. Abbiamo una ragazza ricca e privilegiata - che può comprarsi tutto, tranne la felicità. E così, complice una psichiatra che meriterebbe la radiazione dall’albo, inizia a comprare farmaci e a combinarli in mille modi. L’obiettivo è riuscire a dormire per un anno intero, vivendo il minimo necessario per sopravvivere.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
La depressione raccontata in queste pagine meriterebbe ben più spazio rispetto a quanto si possa fare su Instagram - ma vorrei soffermarmi su due punti. Uno è Reva, l’unica amica della protagonista - anch’essa insicura e disturbata, incapace di farsi valere e bisognosa di attenzioni. Reva è uno di quei personaggi che prenderesti a pugni per tutto il libro, potendo - eppure nell’ultima pagina del libro, adorata da @lettricegeniale , finalmente Reva trova un riscatto - per quanto tragico.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
L’altro aspetto interessante del libro è la psichiatra - e qui potremmo scrivere un poema. Distratta, incoerente, inconcludente, pronta a aggirare il sistema e le assicurazioni - per tutto il libro ignora quello che sta realmente succedendo alla nostra protagonista. È un mostro, ma è anche un monito per tutta la professione medica e sanitaria.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ho amato questo libro? No, anzi: l’ho odiato, a volte l’ho letto solo per volerlo finire, per allontanarmene il più possibile. Ma forse era proprio questo l’obiettivo.

👑👑 Extraño libro de sensaciones encontradas. Una voz, empeñada en no gustar, que bordea la ironia, el cinismo y el desprecio, parece que rete al lector al abandono de la lectura. Bien podría ser la de una generación, ecos de ese registro se encuentran también en #permafrost. Las últimas páginas sin embargo, se convierten en una lectura que atrapa y absorbe y que lleva a la pregunta ¿valió la pena seguir? para encontrarse posiblemente con una respuesta afirmativa, de libros sosos están las estanterias llenas. Si busca el climax en la última página, no lo necesita ya a estás alturas y la imagen final ofrece una moralina que no parece pertenecer al personaje. Además de esto, todo lo sabido, la historia de una joven que quiere pasar un año durmiendo a base de las pastillas de un botiquín psiquiátrico. #otessamoshfegh #miañodedescansoyrelajacion

LENDO. Cheguei nos 50%. Além de usar medicamentos como forma máxima de escape, assim como o narrador do último livro do Houllebeqc, essa moça exagera mesmo no uso de drogas legais para se manter dopada a maior parte do tempo que for possível. Mas isso tem uns efeitos colaterais escrotos. Esses efeitos me lembraram os filme das fotos seguintes... Clube da Luta, pela insônia. Jovem Adulta, pela dificuldade de entender o que é a vida e que ser linda não é merecimento de nada. E, por fim, Tully, pelo problema da privação do sono. .

Esse relaxamento não é tão relaxamento assim...

Moshfegh's characterization of 'sleeping beauty' was absolutely perfect. Grief is a heavy burden to carry, regardless of your privilege(s). I wouldn't say I really identified with the characters themselves, but their motivations were recognizable. And I'd be lying if I said I didn't understand the desire to shut out the world sometimes and just sleep forever. I'll be honest, too, and add that it's brilliant, and there was probably a lot I missed. And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the fact that it's set in 2001.

Book haul! 📚 spot anything you love or hate or want to read?!
.
Admittedly the bottom three were donated to me by Abbie 😏 but the rest were all charity shop buys! 🙌🏻
.
Finally got some Haig fiction, and I’ve been tempted by The Dry for a while now, so couldn’t pass it up for £2! And Abbie may have made me buy the Otessa Moshfegh book 🤷🏼‍♀️ the Kate Mosse book was a mixture of being a cover buy AND also being intrigued by some haunting tales 💀
.
AND I actually have two other books that Abbie donated to me but I had already taken this picture 😂 Tes @paperbackbones will be delighted to know I finally have a copy of If We Were Villains, and Abbie generously gifted me her extra copy of Ask Again, Yes! 🥰
.
It was a bit tight getting them into my suitcase 😅 and my packed bookshelves won’t be too impressed either 😂

#Elastic fantastic. The first thought that came to mind as I explored this unexpected gem, was how exposed you would feel if you bikini bottoms fell off in a pool. That everyone could see and there was nowhere to escape. A pretty bold move from a novelist- to risk a metaphoric exposure of this kind- but I am so glad she did. This one has a raw, honest truth to it as a result.
So let’s talk about this slim, frank translated Danish novel that recently sucked me into its seedy world and held me captive thanks to its prose. If you liked #FatesandFuries by #LaurenGroff with it’s toxic, decaying, revelatory dissection of a seemingly perfect relationship then you will thoroughly enjoy Alice and Simons’ own downward descent- one facilitated by their star crossed paths communing with those of Mathilde and Alexander.
This one oozes the despair of #Eileen by #OtessaMoshfegh. Yet somehow in amongst this bleak, lost sketchy portrait of Alice’s life we get to consider what happens when boundaries are crossed (not only sexually but also those of loyalty and commitment). As things fragment we are exposed to some beautiful #prose that lays bare the loneliness and despair that breeds when a relationship falters... ‘Had these feelings been hiding under the surface all along like the moths in our rug? We didn’t know they were there until we laid the rug down in the living room and they flew out, swarming towards the light. Their wings left grey-brown stains on the walls. It happened overnight’
I sat with this quote for quite a time, savouring it. I communicates the feeling that rises, when a romantic relationship sours. All the sadness and disappointment. The sort of blue that the cover design also pointedly signals.
While this one has some challenging sexual subject matter (for us English prudes at least) you will be richly rewarded with the insights this one broods forward.

„Byłam Eileen” to książka naprawdę mroczna. Zachowanie główniej bohaterki pokazywało, że nie jest ona normalna. Bałam się co jeszcze wymyśli i co podpowie jej mózg. Drażniła mnie strasznie! Wydaje się, że ludzie nie są aż tak rozstrojeni psychicznie. Widocznie jeszcze za mało wiem o życiu...
————————————————
Eileen mieszka w domu z ojcem alkoholikiem. Pracuje w „więzieniu” dla młodzieży, czyli w ośrodku, który ma ich naprostować. Wydaje się, że życie nie szykuje dla niej niespodzianek. Co mogło być najgorsze to właśnie ją spotkało. Ma nadzieję, że nowa pracownica ośrodka okaże się jej wymarzoną przyjaciółką. Wszystko ułoży się pomyślnie. Zaprzyjaźnią się, ale Eileen zostanie wciągnięta w intrygę, która może zniszczyć jej dotychczasowe życie... —————————————————#byłameileen #bylameileen @wydawnictwo_wab #wydawnictwowab #otessamoshfegh #polskiemorze #zakochanawmorzu #zakochanawksiazkach #zmniejszamystoshańby #bookstagrampoland 76/2019

'Zsunęłam sweter, żeby zaciągnąć się papierosem. Reva zawachlowała dłonią przed twarzą i udawała, że kaszle, po czym zwróciła się w moją stronę. Próbowała dodać sobie animuszu przez nawiązanie kontaktu wzrokowego z wrogiem. Widziałam strach w jej oczach, jakby patrzyła w czarną dziurę, do której może lada moment wpaść.
-Ja przynajmniej staram się zmienić i dążyć do spełnienia swoich marzeń - powiedziała. - A czego t y chcesz od życia, poza spaniem?
Postanowiłam zignorować sarkazm.
-Chciałam zostać artystką, ale nie miałam talentu - rzucilam.
-Naprawdę potrzebujesz talentu?
To chyba najmądrzejsza rzecz jaką mi kiedykolwiek powiedziała.
-T a k -odparłam.'
Jest to 10 powieść przeczytana przeze mnie w tym roku. Opowiada o zapadaniu w depresję, w niekończący się zimowy sen zwany melancholią. Zakończenie pozostawia z smutkiem w środku.
Jednak było coś w tym prawdziwego, niekolorowanego. Brutalna, ostra jak brzytwa prawda o depresji.
Polecam.

DICA DE LIVRO DESTA SEMANA (não que eu indique livros aqui toda semana, mas...rs) “MEU ANO DE DESCANSO E RELAXAMENTO”, da norte-americana Otessa Moshfegh (com tradução da @julianacunha e lançado pela @todavialivros)
.
RESUMO RÁPIDO
A protagonista (não sabemos o nome dela) é uma jovem bonita, inteligente e herdeira de uns bons dinheiros. Ela trabalha como assistente numa galeria de arte hype, tem uma amiga que é totalmente oprimida pelo Mito da Beleza e um ex-namorado bem lixerento. Com o passar do tempo, seu desprezo pelo mundo aumenta num grau que ela decide dormir um ano pra depois acordar recuperada de tudo que ~ não sente ~ Para isso, ela conta com a ajuda de uma terapeuta maluca-mequetrefe e passa a fazer combinações infinitas de remédios que a mantenham praticamente em coma a maior parte do tempo
.
MAS É SOBRE O QUÊ?
O tema geral do livro é muito interessante: a desconexão com nós mesmos e com os outros. Como você lida com os seus problemas? Você está ouvindo o que as pessoas estão te dizendo? Você rejeita pq já foi rejeitado?
.
O QUE EU MAIS CURTI
Gostei da forma como a autora costura os assuntos: as críticas ao mundo hype, os julgamentos cruéis que fazemos dentro das nossas cabeças, o vazio, a solidão, a rejeição, relacionamentos abusivos e essa vontade que todo mundo tem de fugir dos problemas e esperar que eles se resolvam sozinhos. Tudo faz sentido ali
.
Outra coisa: a Otessa conduz a narrativa de uma maneira muito bem-humorada, mas de repente me peguei rindo de nervoso e depois nem achava mais engraçado. Ela manda muito bem na manipulação das emoções do leitor, bem ácida!

Un romanzo molto particolare, talvolta stucchevole, altre volte assurdo ma pieno del valore più importante che tutti dovremmo condividere, quello della vita. Il condizionale è d’obbligo visto il momento storico #leggere #leggeresempre #ilmioannodiriposoeoblio #otessamoshfegh #vita #valori #umanita #

“Da questo capivo che il sonno aveva effetto: ero sempre meno attaccata alla vita. Se continuavo così, pensavo, sarei scomparsa completamente, per poi ricomparire in qualche forma nuova. Era quella la mia speranza. Era quello il sogno.”
.
.
.
💊Quante volte ci hanno detto “fatti una bella dormita, poi ti sentirai meglio”? E se la soluzione fosse proprio quella? Un lungo sonno, da cui riemergere come nuovi. Così decide di fare la nostra protagonista, bella, giovane, ricca e decisamente squilibrata. Una novella Bella addormentata in un lussuoso appartamento a New York, convintasi di poter cambiare vita dopo una dormita lunga un anno, capace di ridurre sempre più le ore di veglia, tra sonniferi, antidepressivi al limite del legale e film di Whoopi Goldberg.
💊Sentimenti contrastanti mi hanno accompagnato in questa lettura, oltre a un leggero senso di non star capendo nulla. È come se quello che pensava la protagonista fosse assolutamente realistico, ma il modo in cui lo metteva in pratica avesse dell’assurdo. Una lucida follia con risvolti grotteschi.

Non so indicare un evento specifico che mi aveva portato alla decisione di andare in letargo. All’inizio volevo solo un po’ di calmanti per cancellare pensieri e giudizi perché con la loro raffica continua facevo fatica a non odiare tutti e tutto. Pensavo che la vita sarebbe stata più tollerabile se il mio cervello fosse stato più lento nel condannare il mondo che mi circondava. #ilmioannodiriposoeoblio #myyearofrestandrelaxation #otessamoshfegh #feltrinellieditore #feltrinelli #feltrinelli_editore #narratorifeltrinelli #instabooks #bookstagram #book #books #libro #libri #reading #read #booklover #bookreader #libridaleggere

Dormir por um ano para acordar renovadíssima para uma vida nova depois, quem não quer?
.
Essa é a ideia da protagonista de 'Meu Ano de Descanso e Relaxamento', livro da norte-americana Ottessa Moshfegh, traduzido por @julianacunha e lançado pela @todavialivros - o escolhido da @larisaram para o #ClubedoLivroLamparina de hoje
.
A obra tem uma costura de temas diversos: o comportamento ególatra dos jovens artistas do hype, as consequências do mito da beleza nas mulheres, homens héteros-egoístas que não conseguem desenvolver uma conexão com suas parceiras, a real crueldade com que julgamos os outros dentro de nossas cabeças...Muitas, muitas coisas para observar e trocar ideias!
.
Mas queremos destacar um ponto que é essa onda de 'vamos nos alienar para sermos mais felizes', que rolou nas últimas semanas aqui no insta. Tá bom, gente, não tá fácil viver nesse mundo ~ estranho ~ de hoje (no Brasil, então, nem se fale!). Dá vontade de ignorar tudo, hibernar e acordar só daqui uns 10 anos. Mas vamos falar a real? Fugir dos problemas nunca foi a solução ideal, certo? Vamos respirar juntxs, nos blindar de conhecimento e fazer o nosso melhor para transformar a realidade. É proibido cochilar 🙃

Un libro da portarsi in vacanza è sicuramente questo, IL MIO ANNO DI RIPOSO E OBLIO di Otessa Moshfegh, divertente e intelligente riflessione romanzata sulla necessità di sfuggire al dolore del vivere, spegnendo (per un particolarissimo anno sabbatico da sé stessi) tutti gli interruttori della propria esistenza qui tramite un'ibernazione temporanea. Esilarante e 'veloce' , questo secondo acuto e cinico romanzo della Moshfegh è stato considerato dai librai americani come il più originale e interessante dell'anno.

☀️ July wrap up. A month full of really good books, on the whole. I read 8 and felt like I engaged with them all properly without rushing. Highlights were Paul Takes The Form of a Mortal Girl, Separate and Dominate, Salt Slow and On Earth, We’re Briefly Gorgeous. A lot of Picadors, a lot of queer authors/subjects. A good month!

Vi är på en tripp till Tyskland och första stopp är vackra kultur- och universitetsstaden Heidelberg (slottet från 1200-talet i bakgrunden). Med på resan fick denna följa. Har velat huruvida Ottessa Moshfegh är för mig, men nu ger jag henne en chans & hoppas på det bästa 💛💚.

We're on a trip to Germany and first stop is beautiful Heidelberg with it's old university and cultural heritage (the13th century castle in the background). Brought this one with me. I've been hesitating whether Otessa Moshfegh is for me or not but I'm giving her a chance and hoping for the best 💛💚.

Que livro irritante. Mas nem por isso desinteressante. Imagina uma protagonista loira, magra e privilegiada que decide “descansar” durante um ano, se afoga num mar de remédios psiquiátricos e se alimenta basicamente de M&M’s e comida chinesa trazida pelo delivery. A certa altura o livro me deu nojo: o desperdício de dinheiro e de comida, a ironia excessiva, o retrato da arte contemporânea como a coisa mais idiota criada pela sociedade. Tudo excessivo. Mas vez ou outra irrompe um traço de humanidade na personagem e a história respira um pouco. Se tem um livro recente que mostra como a sociedade do consumo e da aparência são doentias, é esse aqui. Gostei de ter lido.

#myyearofrestandrelaxation oddly compulsive reading - clever writing with unlikeable characters 💊 #otessamoshfegh

Finished this one yesterday, and while I liked it, it just didn’t get anywhere. *mild spoiler*
The narrator is believable, she has a solid voice. Moshfegh does a great job of making you love and hate her simultaneously. I just don’t believe that her situation was remedied by complete avoidance. I don’t believe she could come out of the story without drug rehabilitation and more consequences than a few burned bridges. There’s certainly a lesson in here about privilege, as well as the evils of negligent psychiatric care and pharmaceutical addiction. I was hoping something would trip up her plan during the year, but instead it was just amusing. Worth a read for entertainment value.

I started this book today and feel somewhat blah about it. I always struggle with books where the main character sits around drinking, taking pills, wallowing, etc. This novel has a bit of a Bell Jar vibe to me.

Derek 7.23.19 // I inhaled this book, mostly over the course of two plane rides last weekend. This is the second book I’ve read by Otessa Moshfegh (I read “Eileen” two years ago), and I loved both. Her protagonists aren’t great people—narcissistic, cruel, detached—but I find it refreshing to relish in their contempt for the world around them. It’s cathartic and escapist all in one. This book won’t be for everyone, but it’s one of my recent favorites.

'I want to go home.
But not to my apartment home, to my thirteen-years-ago home, to my hug-my-mother home, say I will make her proud, apologize, explain that j can do better this time, be in my bed, be in my room, look at a magazine, plan my day, start not from scratch but just a little bit back, make different decisions, try to cultivate confidence, try not to coddle bad thoughts, be better, take the right things seriously, not say the things I said to James, try to hold on to a job, monitor my expectations earlier. Bring them way down.'
.
. 'I was embarrassed to be me and needed someone to reassure me that I had good qualities, to reassure me that I was just overreacting or having a bad day.'
.

The New Me is probably my very favourite angsty, ennui-filled, modern day twenties/thirties novel. Continuing the trend of My Year of Rest and Relaxation, The Idiot, Convenience Store Woman, it is a first person narrative about how modern life is, essentially, pretty rubbish. The narrator, Millie, is a permanent temp, drifting from one job to another, full of frustration and rage. The novel just about - for me at least - managed to straddle the line between understandable and disgusting; it did this better than the others I've mentioned which verged into the horrific at times. Millie is a mess, but she's not awful, just chaotic, her behaviour is understandable for the most part. I like my life, my job, my friends, but sometimes I do want to kick people's ankles when they suddenly stop in front of me on a crowded street... This book was so relatable, so astute and perfectly observed. Its only real flaw for me was the ending, which I felt trailed off somewhat, but I'm not sure where else the author could have gone and so it was pretty much forgiveable. It was a great little read on a hot and sunny day - definitely recommended especially if you liked any of the others I've mentioned.

Jag gillar vänner som man kan prata om allt med men också sitta tyst och läsa tillsammans med. Jessica och jag fikar och läser och allt är fint.
Jag gillar min bok också. Den passar utmärkt till fika och rutig klänning. Men jag borde förstås beställt vaniljhjärtan. Jessicas bok funkar kanske bäst till sprit men sånt nyttjar vi inte.

MY YEAR OF REST AND RELAXATION 💊💤 Plagued by the misfortunes of her life, an unnamed protagonist endeavors to sleep for a year. She lulls herself into a self induced coma of sorts, through the abuse of prescription medication. What lengths will she go to in order to achieve her year of sleep? Will it return her to normalcy or will it ultimately be the cause of her undoing? // This book was addictive. The way the protagonist consumed drugs in order to sleep was not dissimilar to how I consumed this book in order to just know more. It’s quite amazing because all the action is just her trying to sleep, and yet the repetitive nature doesn’t feel repetitive at all. The novel provides insight into the essential elements that lead to the protagonist making this life choice. I can’t deny the fact that it was a bit strange and a bit weird but as I said, I couldn’t put it down. I honestly don’t know how to review this book. It has kinda blown me away in all the right ways. The writing was engaging and the story was unique. Overall, it was an insanely compulsive read and I implore everyone to get your hands on this and read it! 💊#booklove #bookreview #readerreview #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #myyearofrestandrelaxation #otessamoshfegh #contemporaryliterature #literaryfiction #compulsiveread #highlyreccomended
