Tell Me I'm Worthless

Alison Rumfitt


Pretty much every trigger warning on this one: I loved it, but it's really difficult to recommend to anyone.

Three people enter a house — two leave — and the trauma clings to the survivors, tearing in at every moment of their lives until the only thing left to do is confront it, shaking and terrified. A horrifyingly visceral story of fascism and intergenerational trauma — the ways we hurt and hate ourselves and each other — how the powerless are made to fight by the powerful. I love a story about a location that's evil: reminded me of ANATOMY, which is the highest praise from me.
