Staff Reviews


Told in tiny, perfect, delicious little sections, Maggie Nelson writes a sort of love song to the color blue that is far sadder, sexier, weirder and more amazing than the premise would suggest. If you like poetry, natural science, magpie histories, or just heartbreak without a single trace of twee, you should read this now. -- Kea's August Staff Pick, 2013

Description


Suppose I were to begin by saying that I had fallen in love with a color . . .

A lyrical, philosophical, and often explicit exploration of personal suffering and the limitations of vision and love, as refracted through the color blue. With Bluets, Maggie Nelson has entered the pantheon of brilliant lyric essayists.

Maggie Nelson is the author of numerous books of poetry and nonfiction, including Something Bright, Then Holes (Soft Skull Press, 2007) and Women, the New York School, and Other True Abstractions (University of Iowa Press, 2007). She lives in Los Angeles and teaches at the California Institute of the Arts.
