The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson

Jem Nockles

I read this in one fervent session and have been dipping in and out of it ever since. Every sentence has a clarity that is close to poetry. Written with electrifying vision and intellect, this memoir is a genre-bending investigation of gender, community, motherhood and family as Nelson accounts her relationship with her fluidly-gendered partner Harry Dodge. One of the best minds out there.
