I can’t recommend this book enough! An instant classic in psychological realism, cognitive dysphoria and queer feminist fiction. A must-read for fans of Shirley Jackson & Angela Carter. Machado is a a genre blender and master storyteller, weaving the surreal, fantastical and the horrific. Incredibly relevant. Gives voice to women’s rage, pain and oppression. Effortlessly shifts from humor to horror. “The Husband Stitch,” “The Resident,” and “Inventory” are my favorites.
