My previous review still stands! Machado is one-of-a-kind:

"What a beautiful, perfect collection of a nightmare. Avid readers know books can save lives, and I daresay this one will save many. I've never encountered anything quite like this book.
(The author is also the narrator for the audio version, with a spoken-word vibe)
Some chapters that resonated with me:
•Dream House as Folktale Taxonomy
•Dream House as Idiom
•Dream House as Choose Your Own Adventure®
•Dream House as Schrödinger's Cat

It's still early days, but this could be the book that defines my 40s."

Interesting. Some beautifully written passages, perhaps too detailed at times for me.
I am assuming this is typical of abuse the world over, no matter the protagonists. It’s the insidious nature of the abuse, hidden from others, hardly discernible and intangible that makes it impossible to overcome. This characteristic is well portrayed.
On the side I loved the ‘ stick of gum’ Hallowe’en story in the notes.
