Lapavona by Otesa Moshfeg review: nothing to enjoy in this deliberately spoiled medieval fantasy

Why has Otesa Moshfegh written a bad medieval fantasy novel? Again, this raises the question of whether it is possible to write a good medieval fantasy novel. Tolkien is, of course. But there is everyone there too. In the first chapter of George RR Martin’s A Game of Thrones, the following lines appear. “‘The direwolves loose in the realm after so many years,’ said the horse’s owner Hullen. ‘I don’t like it’.” Portentus kitsch, this. But people love it. Martin’s books have sold millions. So are Robert Jordan, Tad Williams, Raymond E. Feist, etc. but another part of the cod-courtly flapdoodle loose in scope? I don’t like it.

On the other hand, when a style becomes so popular, it attracts the attention of ironies—that is, writers of more contemplative or parodic leanings, who are interested in what can be said about a style being less kitsch. Maybe a more serious topic. this could be a reason why lapvonaOtesa Moshfeg’s fourth novel, takes place in a typical medieval manor, and why it centers around some of the tropes of medieval fantasy.
