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

The book that changed my life... it's just brilliant. -- Sophie Mackintosh ― Guardian

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

A gorgeous, eddying read. -- Claire-Louise Bennett

Nelson… looks sideways at her heartbreak, allowing for moments of piercing clarity as feelings come into focus. There is wisdom and beauty in this short work. -- Fiona Wilson ― The Times

A luminous meditation on the author’s love for a single colour that displaces itself onto the grief prompted by the end of a relationship and the serious injury of a friend. -- Jenny Hendrix ― Times Literary Supplement

Arty, smart and gorgeous meditation on the color blue.Time Out
