The author's 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.

Summary / Annotation
Damn submitted by kerenemoore on August 27, 2020, 1:59am Machado knocks this out of the park. She seeks a vocabulary, a paradigm, a method of communicating the unseen, misunderstood paradox that domestic violence in lesbian relationships presents. She does it artfully, wisely, painting with depth and endless analogies. We are pulled from shock to absurdity and back to reality again. You won't regret this read.
