A brave, fascinating memoir about love, gender, gender theory, having children, death, writing, and the modern family
Maggie Nelson, an established poet and prose writer, details her love for and relationship with Harry Dodge, a charismatic, gender-fluid artist ('are you a man or a woman?' the narrator wonders, but it just doesn't matter)
In a brilliantly-written account that is moving as well as fascinating, Nelson charts her thoughts and feelings about becoming a step-parent, her pregnancy, Harry's operation and testosterone injections, and the couple's complex joys in queer-family creation
Hailed by Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, as 'one of the most intelligent, generous, and moving books of the year'; by the Los Angeles Times as 'a magnificent achievement of thought, care, and art'; and by the New Yorker as 'a superb exploration of the risk and excitement of change'—The Argonauts is one of the most important and influential books of 2016
A must-read for literati, academics, and anyone interested in the new contours of the contemporary family.
