"At a job interview at a university, three men sitting across from me at a table. On my cv it says that I am currently working on a book about the color blue. I have been saying this for years without writing a word. It is, perhaps, my way of making my life feel "in progress" rather than a sleeve of ash falling off a lit cigarette. One of the men asks, why blue? People as me this question often. I never know how to respond. We don't get to choose what or whom we love, I want to say. We just don't get to choose."

from Bluets.

Maggie Nelson, where have you been all my life? I loved Argonauts so much but it seemed so singular. Little did I know.

Hannah Mary Tabbs and the Disembodied Torso looks like a very interesting book (about a real-life murder in the late 1800s in Philadelphia, of a mixed-race man by a black woman), but I am having a hell of a time getting past the title. It's a dismembered torso. It isn't disembodied, it is the exact opposite. It is nothing but a body.
