Publisher's Summary

An intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of the latest thinking about love, language, and family. A timely and genre-bending memoir that offers fresh and fierce reflections on motherhood, desire, identity and feminism.

At the centre of The Argonauts is the love story between Maggie Nelson and the artist Harry Dodge, who is fluidly gendered. As Nelson undergoes the transformations of pregnancy, she explores the challenges and complexities of mothering and queer family making.

Great read for the right person

This one’s for academics and - at fleeting moments - those looking for a deeper connection to its central figures. Obviously written by an intelligent, highly educated person, but too cerebral for someone on the outside of its lived experience to improve their understanding of its central themes much.
