Carmen Maria Machado’s first memoir, a deep dive into abuse between women both in Machado’s past relationship and in our world, is a wholly unique and wholly necessary text.
Novels, memoirs, essay and short story collections that are really good and also have sex in them that involve two or more women! Wow!
Talking about Kristen Stewart, gems, lesbian tropes, Girl Scout crushes, swine flu, the apocalypse and more with award-winning queer writer Carmen Maria Machado.
Here are eight queer short story collections that embody the same kind of creepy, “bodies as horror,” fabulist, dark fairy tale feel that Machado’s book does.
