The Argonauts

Maggie Nelson


An intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of the latest thinking about love, language, and family. 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. 

A timely and genre-bending memoir that offers fresh and fierce reflections on motherhood, desire, identity and feminism
