In the Dream House: A Memoir

In the Dream House: A Memoir

Author: Carmen Maria Machado Narrator: Carmen Maria Machado Release Date: 01/07/2020

In the Dream House is Carmen Maria Machado's engrossing and wildly innovative account of a relationship gone bad. Tracing the full arc of a harrowing experience with a charismatic but volatile woman, this is a bold dissection of the mechanisms and cultural representations of psychological abuse. 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. "A dark jewel reflecting something startling - familiar and strange" GUARDIAN "Ravishingly beautiful" OBSERVER "Excruciatingly honest and yet vibrantly creative" IRISH TIMES "Provocative and rich" ECONOMIST "Daring, chilling, and unlike anything else you've ever read" ESQUIRE "An absolute must-read for 2020" STYLIST

March Sisters: On Life, Death, and Little Women

March Sisters: On Life, Death, and Little Women

Author: Carmen Maria Machado, Jane Smiley, Jenny Zhang, Kate Bolick Narrator: Cassandra Campbell Release Date: 01/09/2019

For the 150th anniversary of the publication of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, Kate Bolick, Jenny Zhang, Carmen Maria Machado, and Jane Smiley explore their strong lifelong personal engagement with Alcott's novel-what it has meant to them and why it still matters. Each takes as her subject one of the four March sisters, reflecting on their stories and what they have to teach us about life. Kate Bolick finds parallels in oldest sister Meg's brush with glamour at the Moffats' ball and her own complicated relationship with clothes. Jenny Zhang confesses to liking Jo least among the sisters when she first read the novel as a girl, uncomfortable in finding so much of herself in a character she feared was too unfeminine. Carmen Maria Machado writes about the real-life tragedy of Lizzie Alcott, the inspiration for third sister Beth, and the horror story that can result from not being the author of your own life's narrative. And Jane Smiley rehabilitates the reputation of youngest sister Amy, whom she sees as a modern feminist role model for those of us who are, well, not like the fiery Jo. These four voices come together to form a deep, funny, far-ranging meditation on the power of great literature to shape our lives.

Jej cia?o i inne strony: Opowiadania (Short stories)

Jej cia?o i inne strony: Opowiadania (Short stories)

Author: Carmen Maria Machado Narrator: Maria Seweryn Release Date: 01/10/2018

A literary revelation! "Her Body And Other Parties" was nominated for the National Book Award and 2017 Kirkus Prize. Based on the book, a series is being made that was announced by the producers to be "a feminist Black Mirror". It contains eight spicy, boundry-crossing stories about the universal female experience: the relation between sex and power, objectification, the tyrrany of the beauty canons, stereotypes, misogyny, and violence. This book is all about the horror of being a woman. "New York Times" put Machado's debut prose on their prestigious list "The New Vanguard", as one of the 15 books written by women "that are shaphing the way we read and write fiction in the 21st century".

Her Body and Other Parties

Her Body and Other Parties

Author: Carmen Maria Machado Narrator: Amy Landon Release Date: 01/06/2018

In her provocative debut, Carmen Maria Machado demolishes the borders between magical realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism. Startling narratives map the realities of women's lives and the violence visited on their bodies, both in myth and in practice. A wife refuses her husband's entreaties to remove the mysterious green ribbon from around her neck. A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague spreads across the earth. A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery about a store's dresses. One woman's surgery-induced weight loss results in an unwanted house guest. Bodies become inconsequential, humans become monstrous, anger becomes erotic. A dark, shimmering slice into womanhood, Her Body and Other Parties is wicked and exquisite.

Her Body and Other Parties: Stories

Her Body and Other Parties: Stories

Author: Carmen Maria Machado Narrator: Amy Landon Release Date: 01/10/2017

In Her Body and Other Parties, Carmen Maria Machado blithely demolishes the arbitrary borders between psychological realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism. While her work has earned her comparisons to Karen Russell and Kelly Link, she has a voice that is all her own. In this electric and provocative debut, Machado bends genre to shape startling narratives that map the realities of women's lives and the violence visited upon their bodies. A wife refuses her husband's entreaties to remove the green ribbon from around her neck. A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague slowly consumes humanity. A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery within the seams of the store's prom dresses. One woman's surgery-induced weight loss results in an unwanted houseguest. And in the bravura novella "Especially Heinous," Machado reimagines every episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, a show we naïvely assumed had shown it all, generating a phantasmagoric police procedural full of doppelgängers, ghosts, and girls with bells for eyes.
