I’ve been obsessed with writer and critic Maggie Nelson’s work since her excellent cult hit Bluets came on the scene and provided solace to every broken-hearted young literary woman I know. Her most recent book, The Argonauts melds autobiography and critical theory into a seamless examination of sex, gender, and family, and she’s the kind of writer who’s always worth seeing in person, bringing a rare mix of intellect, humanity, and dry wit to everything she does. Don’t miss her when she swings by PNCA this week.
