A Book Tutor of the Year Maggie Nelson is one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the strongest and most flexible thinkers of her generation – Olivia Laing Bluets winds through depression, divinity, alcohol, and the desire to visit along the way with famous blue characters, including Joni MitchellWhile her narrator strives to build a sort of “pillow book” about her obsessive life with the color blue, she finds herself facing down both the painful end of the affair and the severity of the wound of a very dear friendThe combination produces a raw, cerebral sound work devoted to the inextricability of pleasure and pain, and to the question of what role, if any, aesthetic beauty can play in moments of great sorrow of love or sorrowA bit like Roland Barthes is A Loving Speech, Bluets passed between lovers in the ecstasy of new love, and was thrust into the hands of the broken heartVisceral, learned, and extremely lucid, Bluets is a thin literary achievement of innovation and grace, never published in the UK
