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.
