Bluets (Compact Disc)
“Suppose I were to begin by saying that I had fallen in love with a color,” writes Maggie Nelson in the opening note of Bluets. What follows is an account of a love, truly, including love’s every aspect: lust, infatuation, frustration, occasional boredom, and constant fascination as Nelson tumbles into this vivid hue and pulls us into its depths along with her. Part memoir, perhaps a poem, part literary history of blue and the psychology of color, Bluets is a mesmerizing book that will color your world and your reading anew.— Molly
