Shiner (Paperback)Maggie Nelson (author)
- In stock
'Maggie Nelson is one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the sharpest and most supple thinkers of her generation'
In this electrifying and raw debut anthology, Maggie Nelson unpicks the everyday with the quick alchemy and precision of her later modern classics The Argonauts and Bluets. The poems of Shiner experiment with a variety of styles-syllabic verse, sonnets, macaronic translation, Zen poems, walking poems-to express love, bewilderment, grief, and beauty. This book, Nelson's first, heralded the arrival of a fully formed, virtuoso voice.

'Shiner is totally cool. Maggie Nelson delivers the goods with fiendish delight.'
Praise for The Argonauts:
'I read The Argonauts in one breathless, tearful, mind-blown day and I'm still recovering'
'Nelson's writing is fluid - to read her story is to drift dreamily among her thoughts'
'Nelson is so outrageously gifted a writer and thinker'
'Maggie Nelson writes like no one else on the planet'
'Maggie Nelson [is] so much better than anything I've read for a long, long time'
Karl Ove Knausgaard
'One of the great gifts of Nelson's writing is how it embodies the process of her mind at work'
