Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nelson relates a history of blue from philosophical, zoological, and literary perspectives, all the while weaving in bits of memoir and emotional rumination. Through this collage, she broadens the definition of blue from a merely visual phenomenon to a vehicle for the divine.” Time Out New York
“An elegant, indispensable addition to the genre of the lyric essay.” Boston Review
“A book to be experienced. I can only report that I am reading it again and again, that the resonances between the (seemingly) disparate propositions are startling and emotional, that I suspect your reaction will be different and also quite wonderful.” The Rumpus
Bluets is smart yet intimate, quiet yet provocative, and a welcome addition to the poetic nonfiction discourse.” Bomb
“May radically redefine poetry, as it increasingly becomes the genre that is not one.” Bookforum
