Product description

Review

"Transcendent.... very inspiring. She’s an amazing writer." (Lorde Irish Times)

"Maggie Nelson... She's so much better than anything I've read for a long, long time." (Karl Ove Knausgaard)

"The book that changed my life... it's just brilliant." (Sophie Mackintosh Guardian)

"I remember where I was when I read each of Maggie Nelson's books in the same way I remember a place where I heard important news. Her words come, as though from a great distance, and strike incredibly close. I did not actually read Bluets, I think - I just let it hit me." (Anne Enright)

"Maggie Nelson is one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the sharpest and most supple thinkers of her generation. " (Olivia Laing)

"[Nelson's] candour, also evident in The Argonauts, gives Bluets a turbo-charged vitality, precision and authenticity that frees her to reflect on the way female desire is too often sidelined or ignored.... In her dark excavation of grief, she has collected messages of great wisdom and powerful beauty." (Gavin Francis Guardian)

"A gorgeous, eddying read." (Claire-Louise Bennett)

"Nelson… looks sideways at her heartbreak, allowing for moments of piercing clarity as feelings come into focus. There is wisdom and beauty in this short work." (Fiona Wilson The Times)

"A luminous meditation on the author’s love for a single colour that displaces itself onto the grief prompted by the end of a relationship and the serious injury of a friend." (Jenny Hendrix Times Literary Supplement)

"Arty, smart and gorgeous meditation on the color blue." (Time Out)

About the Author

Maggie Nelson is a poet, critic and the author of five books of non-fiction. Her books include The Red Parts: Autobiography of a Trial, The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning (a New York Times Editor’s Choice) and The Argonauts (winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award), as well as four collections of poetry. In 2016 she was awarded the MacArthur Genius fellowship. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
