About the Author:

Maggie Nelson is a poet, critic, and nonfiction author of books such as The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning, Bluets, and Jane: A Murder. She teaches in the School of Critical Studies at CalArts and lives in Los Angeles, California.

Review:

''A superb exploration of the risk and the excitement of change . . . An exceptional portrait both of a romantic partnership and of the collaboration between Nelson's mind and heart.'' -- New Yorker

''Maggie Nelson slays entrenched notions of gender, marriage, and sexuality with lyricism, intellectual brass, and soul-ringing honesty.'' -- Vanity Fair

''A magnificent achievement of thought, care, and art.'' -- Los Angeles Times

''Nelson's writing is fluid -- to read her story is to drift dreamily among her thoughts . . . She masterfully analyzes the way we talk about sex and gender.'' -- Huffington Post

''One of the most intelligent, generous, and moving books of the year.'' -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

''A book that will challenge readers as much as the author has challenged herself.'' -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''So much writing about motherhood makes the world seem smaller after the child arrives, more circumscribed, as if in tacit fealty to the larger cultural assumptions about moms and domesticity; Nelson s book does the opposite.'' -- New York Times Book Review

''Reading Maggie Nelson is like watching a high-wire act. Her books are inspiring . . . Because of her dazzling sentences, I will read whatever the daredevil writes. She cozies up to ideas unlike any other American writer.'' -- Boston Globe

Book Description Melville House UK, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. An intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of the latest thinking about love, language, and family Maggie Nelson s The Argonauts is a genre-bending memoir, a work of autotheory offering fresh, fierce, and timely thinking about desire, identity, and the limitations and possibilities of love and language. At its center is a romance: the story of the author s relationship with the artist Harry Dodge. This story, which includes Nelson s account of falling in love with Dodge, who is fluidly gendered, as well as her journey to and through a pregnancy, offers a firsthand account of the complexities and joys of (queer) family-making. Writing in the spirit of public intellectuals such as Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, Nelson binds her personal experience to a rigorous exploration of what iconic theorists have said about sexuality, gender, and the vexed institutions of marriage and child-rearing. Nelson s insistence on radical individual freedom and the value of caretaking becomes the rallying cry of this thoughtful, unabashed, uncompromising book. Seller Inventory # AAT9780993414916
