Maggie Nelson is the author of nine books of poetry and prose, many of which have become cult classics defying categorization. She first published BLUETS with Wave Books in 2009; in 2015, Bookforum named BLUETS one of the top 10 best books of the past 20 years. Her other nonfiction titles include the National Book Critics Circle Award winner The Argonauts (2015), The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning (2011; a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), The Red Parts: Autobiography of a Trial (2007), and Women, the New York School, and Other True Abstractions (2007). Her poetry titles include Something Bright, Then Holes (2007), Jane: A Murder (2005), THE LATEST WINTER (Hanging Loose Press, 2003), and SHINER (Hanging Loose Press, 2001). She writes frequently on art, and in 2016 was awarded a MacArthur "genius" Fellowship. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
