In the Dream House

Carmen Maria Machado's new memoir, In the Dream House, is an engrossing and wildly innovative account of a relationship gone bad, and a bold dissection of the mechanisms and cultural representations of psychological abuse. Tracing the full arc of a harrowing relationship with a charismatic but volatile woman, Machado struggles to make sense of how what happened to her shaped the person she was becoming. Machado will read from the memoir and discuss the book and its themes with fiction writer Deb Olin Unferth. Machado will sign books following the program. Books will be available for purchase thanks to BookPeople.
