A review by fletchybaby
The Argonauts, by Maggie Nelson


This was hitting a lot of great topics. I learnt a lot and felt a lot. I didn’t find it as form bending as I was expecting from the hype it just felt like a diary without the dates in. The first three quarters were really theory heavy, the author doesn’t dumb down at all which I admire but I struggled a lot to get through some of the tougher quotes and concept and felt quite alienated. The last quarter however was amazing, suddenly there was this clarity and emotional connection to the topics discussed throughout that I hadn’t felt previously and it was magic.
