Author: Alison Rumfitt
Staff Pick! So says…
A haunted house novel that makes the very excellent point that hello, Britain is a haunted house, and that the final girl has become the pin-up for misogynist and transphobic fantasies. Also the excellent point that Morrissey is a fucking monster. Tell Me I’m Worthless shows up white supremacy, ‘gender-critical’ feminism, anti-semitism, imperialism, capitalism and other deeply British fascist values as the funhouse mirrors that they are, distorting our relationships to ourselves, each other and histories – and it does it through a cracking, edge-of-your-seat chiller and a compelling love(hate)(love) story. Beware: Rumfitt pulls no punches when it comes to how fascism tortures. This is high-wire writing and a unique reading experience.
