WINNER - Lambda Literary Award LGBTQ Nonfiction 2020
A revolutionary memoir about domestic abuse by the award-winning author of Her Body and Other Parties.
Each chapter views the relationship through a different 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.
