Don’t listen to the author interviews before reading the books...

The interviewer gives away the ending of Ottessa Moshfegh’s “DescriptionMy Year of Rest and Relaxation” through questioning plot motivations that happen within the last 10 pages of the book. This was unnecessary and completely spoiled the ending.

I wish I had not listened to this.
