In the Dream House

Cover of In the Dream House

Carmen Maria Machado



“A tour-de-force meditation on trauma, survival and the language we use to talk about it all.” —TIME, Best Books of 2019

“Machado’s wit and compulsive post-mortem approach configure her story into a wildly propulsive memoir, an ambulatory survey of the genre.” — New York Times Book Review

In the Dream House is the kind of book that burrows under the reader’s skin while simultaneously forcing her to inhabit the body of the writer.” —
