These "lectures" meander through subjects -- poets and the moon, the joys and sorrows of reading, fear, and irreverence, to name a few -- with a voice full of wonder, wit, and wisdom. Guaranteed to inspire any writer, dreamer, creative soul, or lover of words, Madness, Rack, and Honey is the book I always wish I were reading again for the first time.

“Suppose I were to begin by saying that I had fallen in love with a color,” writes Maggie Nelson in the opening lines of Bluets. What follows is an account of true love, including lust, infatuation, frustration, boredom, and fascination as Nelson tumbles into this vivid hue and pulls us into its depths along with her. Part memoir, perhaps a poem, part literary history of blue and the psychology of color, Bluets is a mesmerizing book that will color your world anew.

All I can really say about this book, a big, beautiful novel that spans generations of an American family, is that every single person I know who has read it has loved it, and we all talk about the characters as if they're old friends. What makes a novel so beloved? It's hard to say, but this one just is.

Anne Carson -- poet, classicist, novelist-in-verse -- seems to know something about everything. So she's uniquely qualified to write these perfect little prose pieces about, well, everything. On where to travel. On why some people find trains exciting. On Ovid. On trout. On rain. On hedonism. On who you are. These short talks are kind of indescribable and definitely brilliant.
