I've been searching high and low for our अगला book. The club has been much और international than I had anticipated - and much bigger. I'm really proud of my club members - discussion-wise - आप are all hitting it out of the park. I'm having to find पुस्तकें that are accessible, cover multiple perspectives and languages, that are unique and not too well known already... So without further ado...
Our अगला book is going to be The Argonauts, द्वारा Maggie Nelson. The story is about the author’s relationship with artist Harry Dodge, who is fluidly gendered. It's about their romance, the birth of their son, the death of Harry’s mother and their changing bodies, as Maggie becomes pregnant and Harry undergoes surgery, but it’s also about inclusion and the powers and shortfalls of language. It might require a bit of work but The Argonauts rewards us with an expansive way of considering identity, caretaking, and freedom—along with a liberation from, what Maggie calls, “the demand that anyone live a life that’s all one thing.” I am excited to read this book with you. Maybe it will change the way we think and speak about others and ourselves?
Hope I did आप proud,
Em Wats X
