Bluets 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.

  • Sexy read

    By Sofia Bodniza
    Nelson captures the color blue from all shades and unique perspectives. I giggled, felt sexy, teared up, got confused, felt joy, got sad, felt sexy again - dissecting essay by essay. She's an exquisite writer. I recommend this eclectic book to all (who wear blue)
