A groundbreaking memoir that offers fresh and fierce reflections on motherhood, desire, gender, 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.
Writing in the tradition of public intellectuals like Susan Sontag, Nelson uses arresting prose even as she questions the limits of language. The Argonauts is an intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of love, language, and family.

    The sooner you can pry the twofer apart, the sooner you can dispense with one constituent of the relationship: the woman with rights.
