The Argonauts

The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson is a lovely, intelligent, deeply thoughtful, exploration of love, identity, relationships, the body, and motherhood. Drawing on theory and literature, Nelson engages in a critical, beautifully written "memoir" of her romantic relationship with a queer artist and their family-making. Her deep reading of various texts is intimate, and one thing that emerges from The Argonauts is how significant writing can be to our meaningful understanding of ourselves and our world.
