Published: Wave Books, 10/2009

Maggie Nelson examines not only the color blue, but the ways in which she is attracted to, if not desiring and lustful of, blue. In order to better understand her desire for blue, she examines her other desires: for an ex-lover, whom she calls the prince of blue, for sex, for writing, for drinking. She falls in love with blue. She tries to make blue the answer to her loneliness. She studies the history of blue, the linguistics, the way philosophers have been obsessed by it and how the average adult will favor it. Perhaps it's a universal desire, the way we sing the blues and feel blue. The way we are lonely too. This is a brief book but monstrously expansive and heartfelt.

Book Recommendations

  • $15.00
    Two brothers, buried in treasures and trash, end up dying in the once-elegant 4-story Harlem mansion. Told simply by the younger, blind brother, Homer, this tale is based on the true story of the Collyer brothers whose hoarding generates their descent into despair. Paranoia overwhelms Langley, who loves his brother but has lost any resemblance to common sense. Heart-ripping sentiment surfaces in the reader for these two very strange men, who actually had money to live in style. Overcome by possessions, unable to remember lives with function and purpose, Homer and Langley charm the reader amidst the quagmire of their home! - Jane
