(Audiobook) The Appointment: Complete Review

For subscribers of all Ottessa Moshfegh and Han Kang, a whip-smart, darkly funny, and subversive debut novel in which a woman on the verge of major change addresses her doctor in a stream of consciousness narrative.

At a well-appointed evaluation in London, a young girl unburdens herself to a certain Dr Seligman. Though she can hardly see over his head, she holds on about her lifestyle and needs her struggles with her sexuality and individuality. Born and raised in Germany, she’s been living in London for many years, decided to break free from her family origins and her haunted homeland. Nevertheless, the recent death of her grandfather, and also an unexpected inheritance, make it clear you cannot easily outrun your own shame, whether it be bodily, familial, historical, national, or each the aforementioned.

Or will you? Together with Dr. Seligman’s help, our narrator will find out.

In a monologue which is both deliciously dark and subversively humorous, she takes us to some broad trip from Hitler-centered sexual fantasies and overbearing mothers to the medicinal qualities of squirrel tails and the thought that anatomical adjustments can act as historic reparation. The Appointment is an audacious debut novel by an explosive new global literary voice, hard All our notions of what is fluid and what is repaired, along with the myriad ways we seek to make peace with ourselves and others at the 21st century
