Carmen Maria Machado’s new memoir In The Dream House documents the abuse she suffered at the hands of her “petite, blond, Harvard graduate” lover. It's a horrifying but beguiling read which seems to be Machado's trademark combo. At once an exploration of a romance that descends from bliss into gaslighting and abusive control as well as a cultural criticism of the ways in which abuse toward and among women, specifically queer women, is (and is not) represented, this is a truly inventive and accomplished book. Machado is such a unique and brilliant writer and we think everyone should read her!
