'A dark jewel reflecting something startling - familiar and strange' Guardian'Ravishingly beautiful' Observer'Excruciatingly honest and yet vibrantly creative' Irish Times' Provocative and rich' Economist 'Daring, chilling, and unlike anything else you've ever read' Esquire 'An absolute must-read for 2020' StylistIn the Dream House is Carmen Maria Machado's engrossing and wildly innovative account of a relationship gone bad. Tracing the full arc of a harrowing experience with a charismatic but volatile woman, this is a bold dissection of the mechanisms and cultural representations of psychological abuse. Each chapter views the relationship through a different lens, as Machado holds events up to the light and examines them from distinct angles.

She casts a critical eye over legal proceedings, fairy tales, Star Trek and Disney villains, as well as iconic works of film and fiction, infusing all with her characteristic wit, playfulness and openness to enquiry. The result is a powerful book that explodes our ideas about what a memoir can do and be. Winner of the 2020 Lambda Literary Award in LGBTQ Non-fiction and the Publishing Triangle Judy Grahn Award for Lesbian Non-Fiction
