Maggie Nelson & Hari Kunzru discuss Nelson's "On Freedom"

Sep 08, 2021

Author Maggie Nelson returns with On Freedom: Four Songs of Care and Constraint, a boundary-pushing, provocative work that explores the notion of freedom through four lenses: art, sex, drugs, and the climate. In the highly anticipated follow-up to The Argonauts, Nelson continues to astound as “one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the sharpest and most supple thinkers of her generation” (The Guardian).

For this first online appearance of her national book tour, Nelson is joined by celebrated novelist and journalist Hari Kunzru.

Nelson is the author of Argonauts, Bluets, and On Cruelty, among other titles. A New York Times bestseller and New York Times Notable Book, The Argonauts was awarded the 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism, and in 2016 Nelson was awarded a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship. Kunzru is the author of the novels The Impressionist, Transmission, My Revolutions, Gods Without Men, White Tears, and Red Pill. His work has been translated into 20 languages.
