Staff Reviews

Candid and wildly creative, Machado deep-dives into her past abusive relationship with another woman, using tropes from fairy tales, horror, and other genres to create a powerful yet accessible memoir. In the words of a friend, ‘This is a valuable, necessary piece of writing, and I am both proud of and grateful towards Carmen Maria Machado for having written it.’ 

— Amber

November 2019 Indie Next List

“Welcome to the Dream House in this daring new kind of memoir that defies boundaries and boldly discards the conventions of genre. Inside, Carmen Maria Machado bares her soul in all of its pain and beauty, offering an intimate and profoundly vulnerable look at her own life, love, and sexuality. Machado has a gift for exposing the raw nerves and small miracles lurking beneath the surface of our daily lives. Her words move with a strange kind of urgency, surreal and yet true, like late-night phone calls when the rest of the world is asleep. I didn’t feel like I was reading a book so much as observing a person’s innermost thoughts. In the Dream House is a unique and extraordinary book.”
— Jason Foose, Changing Hands, Tempe, AZ
