Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by The Millions, a Best Book to Read in April by Town & Country and The AV Club, and one of 2022's Best Beach Reads by Southern Living"Read if you like: Ottessa Moshfegh's My Year of Rest and Relaxation, artificial flavors, avoidant behavior, wondering what a 'lifestyle' is and whether you have one." --Molly Young, The New York Times"This book is a serious vibe . . . it's a slyly poignant satire on cruise ships, crappy jobs, and capitalism." --Cosmopolitan"Darkly comic existential fiction at its best." --Culture Whisper (UK)"Deliciously unpredictable" --Mateo Askaripour, author of Black Buck"Utterly sharp, slyly humorous . . . Startlingly unique and beautifully written." --Frances Cha, author of If I Had Your FaceFrom the queen of modern satire and prize-winning author of Supper Club--a debut novel that Vogue called "Stephanie Danler's Sweetbitter meets Donna Tartt's The Secret History"--comes The Odyssey, a fresh twist on the classic epic journey.
Williams delivers another thought-provoking satire about one woman's lonely journey working aboard a luxury cruise ship and her attempts to navigate its complex work environment, the absurdity of life on and offshore, and the ever-changing seas of love and friendships. This surreal trip is an unapologetic takedown of capitalism will appeal to fans of Melissa Broder and Ottessa Moshfegh.
