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)

"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)

Book Description

From the award-winning author of The Argonauts, comes a slim feat of literary innovation- Bluets meditates on sex, art, all things blue, and the unique pain of a relationship in free fall

'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
