Review In the Dream House Free download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free è Carmen Maria Machado Carmen Maria Machado è 2 Summary F how what happened to her shaped the person she was becomingAnd it's that struggle that gives the book its original structure each chapter is driven by its own narrative trope haunted houses erotica bildungsroman in which Machado holds the events up to the light and examines them from different angles She looks back at her religious adolescence unpacks the stereotype of lesbian relationships as safe and utopian and widens. YES YES YES A 1000x better than expected and I expected nothing short of holy scriptureMonths earlier I stumbled upon the description and knew this book would be monumental As early reviews crept in my anticipation grew I had my Kindle fully charged and stayed up until midnight so I could start reading the second it released By 2am I was 30% done A few marathon readings later I reached the last page with breathless finality The result Monumental doesn t even begin to cover itThe funny thing it s not monumental because of what happens Bad relationships happen all the time Abusive relationships mental andor physical happen all the time It s talked about less in ueer relationships that s true and Machado does a great job pointing that out but I doubt anybody will be dumbfounded by what they read They will be surprised however that there s someone brave enough to talk about it and by how personal she s willing to get They will be surprised by how she structures itThe structure really is what makes this a masterpiece It s not just the experience it s the delivery The darkest memories are brilliantly conveyed in second person and through varying lens Most of them literary devices Machado recounts her life through the eyes of Chekhov s Gun Choose Your Own Adventure Haunted House Erotica Plot Twist and dozens Each section is short and precise Never a wasted word For those uncomfortable reading about abuse she doesn t take it too far either This isn t battered woman porn She doesn t go on and on We get snippets glimpses of a life that we can easily piece together and importantly relate toWhat she accomplishes for the ueer community specifically I think is breaking the ice After hard fought battles for marriage euality there s this unspoken rule that gay relationships must work If they don t people will point and say I told you so By extension rights may be taken away Obviously that s not the only factor that kept Machado in her relationship It may not even be in the Top 10 but it is a shadow that hovers over the scene She points to lesbian stereotypes as well Society expects men to be abusive but two women Their relationship should be a utopia right These stereotypes this ice is something she clearly wants to break apart And she succeeds tremendouslyOf course you don t have to be ueer to recognize this is a master work of memoir and creative non fiction It is a testament that all experiences however ordinary or uniue should be shared Perhaps the most powerful aspect of the book is the relentless honesty She veils it slightly by the structure and 2nd person but in a way this makes the experience real More true And the accomplishment I think is for any one person to read this and be able to know that for sure they are not alone

Review In the Dream House Free download ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free è Carmen Maria Machado Carmen Maria Machado è 2 Summary The view with essayistic explorations about the history and reality of abuse in ueer relationshipsMachado's dire narrative is leavened with her characteristic wit playfulness and openness to inuiry She casts a critical eye over legal proceedings Star Trek and Disney villains fairy tales as well as iconic works of film and fiction The result is a wrenching riveting book that explodes our ideas about what a memoir can do and. In the Dream House is a most unmemoir like memoir This account of Carmen Maria Machado s years in an abusive same sex relationship plays with form blending elements of literary criticism pop culture essays folk tales and the shadowy worlds of her short fiction To tell this real life story Machado cleaves herself in two the first person present day I settled successful safe addresses the second person past you This textual interplay between two Carmens affords closeness than addressing an imagined reader would You cried in front of many people You missed readings parties the supermoon You tried to tell your story to people who didn t know how to listen You made a fool of yourself in ways than oneI thought you died but writing this I m not sure you did Machado has then further cut and polished her pain into dozens of tiny gleaming facets variations in style that are employed as lenses each one offering a new revelation Among these for example are Dream House as lipogram as prisoner s dilemma as Schr dinger s Cat as Choose Your Own Adventure as comedy of errors This all could have fallen into a gimmicky heap but the blend of formal inventiveness and raw vulnerability is executed beautifully In the Dream House is a memoir from someone who not only has a painful experience to relate and work through but who can also REALLY write AND think AND synthesise who in her own words can braid the clays of memory and essay and fact and perception together smash them into a ball roll them flat Overall it is unconventional and as such won t be to everyone s taste but not in a way that s distancing or abstract A genuinely memorable and highly impressive work 5 stars
