Gorgeous, clean prose presented in eight connected essays—the last of which (the titular) comprises the latter half and more. Abandon as in deserted. Abandon as in to yield oneself completely. Emotional truths are interwoven with mythology, pop culture, history, and philosophy. The result is, at its core, an unflinching and intellectual examination of identity. [Tanya]

A meditation on the color blue (and love, loss, obsession…) in the form of numbered propositions (memoir rendered lyrical, philosophical…). You want to own Bluets because you will want to re-read it, and with every re-reading you’ll discover something different—about yourself, maybe, about Nelson’s subtleties, absolutely. Something you’ll want to tell all your friends about while also harboring as your own secret. [Tanya]
