Editorial Reviews

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

About the Author

Maggie Nelson is a poet, art 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.
