"Through Maggie Nelson's powerful prose and expansive reflection on a wide breadth of subject matter, we see one of the most wonderful, poetic minds of this generation detail how she's come to see the world through a lens of love through friendship with some of the world's most influential artists and creative thinkers."--Felicia Reich, Paste Magazine
