Paperback:In the dream house:2020 Paperback
Author: Machado, Carmen Maria
Year: 2020
Language: English
Interest category: Biography
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Serpent's Tail
Resource type: Physical
Note: 'In 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 narrative 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. General adult
