The Rathbones Folio Prize 2021 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado as the winner of the Rathbones Folio Prize 2021

Referencing Star Trek, Disney villains and classic works of literature, Machado’s staggeringly innovative memoir takes a blazingly original and multi-layered approach to the complex and emotive subject of abusive relationships.

 

In the Dream House is a compelling memoir, a striking piece of storytelling, and a work of art. This is my story, Carmen Maria Machado tells us, and it needs to be heard.’

Jon McGregor, JUDGE
