Carmen Maria Machado, a Ten Evenings Author Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures

Art Streiber/AUGUST
Carmen Maria Machado
For a proper introduction to the writing of Carmen Maria Machado, start with the short story "Especially Heinous: 272 Views of Law & Order SVU" from her 2017 collection Her Body and Other Parties. It's a wildly inventive narrative written in the form of SVU episode synopses, with Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler encountering aliens, ghosts with bells for eyes, Edgar Allan Poe-ish hauntings, and pair of spooky doppelgängers of the investigators named Abler and Henson. If that piques your interest — and how could it not? — dive into Machado's award-winning work and catch her lecture at Carnegie Music Hall, discussing her new novel In The Dream House.
