The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson

Maggie Nelson. I love your poetry and your bluntness. I love that you embrace uncertainty and nuance. I love that you are unafraid of difficult conversations.

The Argonauts is a poetic memoir about the transitions Maggie and her partner Harry went though during her pregnancy, and Harry's mastectomy and decision to use T (hormone therapy). It's also about bodies and the way society needs to sort them, categorise them, and define them as part of a political stance. Such things as love, desire, sexuality, and gender are not always so easily defined and there is value in being 'messy'.
