Product description


In this gender-bending memoir, Maggie Nelson writes about the way both their bodies were changing, and about the intricacies of building her queer family.

-- "New York Times"

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"

So much writing about motherhood makes the world seem smaller after the child arrives...Nelson's book does the opposite.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

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"

Reading Maggie Nelson is like watching a high-wire act. Her books are inspiring.

-- "Boston Globe"

Nelson's writing is fluid...She masterfully analyzes the way we talk about sex and gender.

-- "Huffington Post"

Part portrait of a happy family, part critical meditation on queerness...It doesn't hurt that she speaks with the voice of a poet either.

-- ", A Best Book of 2015 So Far"

Exploring questions of family, mortality, and gender, and finding inspiration in both the personal and the artistic along the way.

-- ", Best Nonfiction Books of 2015 So Far"

One of the most intelligent, generous, and moving books of the year.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
