Pushcart Prize-winning author Ottessa Moshfegh has seen her stories published in the Paris Review, the New Yorker, and Granta, and her second novel, Eileen, was shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Man Booker Prize. From her critically acclaimed collection Homesick for Another World, "Mr. Wu" delivers a unique twist on the common tale of unrequited love. A lonely man with horrific breath, the titular character slakes his lust with prostitutes even as he silently pines for the middle-aged woman managing the local internet cafe. Mr. Wu is determined to declare his love and sends her a text message that brings about unexpected results. "Dark, confident, prickling stories. . Sampling her sentences is like touching a mildly electrified fence."-New York Times
