A haunting memoir

Dream House as Reality.

You tried to tell your story to people who didn't know how to listen. You made a fool of yourself, in more ways than one. I thought you died, but writing this, I'm not sure you did.

In the Dream House is a memoir showing domestic abuse in a queer relationship. The author describes her trauma in poetic prose that is so freaking haunting. Every aspect of her story resonated so deeply with me, and there's a reminder here that being queer doesn't make you good or bad. It just makes you queer, and you're able to fall for the same mistakes that anyone else could - include falling in love with a monster and staying in an abusive relationship.
