Maggie Nelson & Amelia Abraham: On Freedom

Drawing on a vast range of material, from critical theory to pop culture to the intimacies and plain exchanges of daily life, Maggie Nelson’s On Freedom (Jonathan Cape) explores how we might think, experience, or talk about freedom in ways responsive to the conditions of our day. Her abiding interest lies in ongoing “practices of freedom” by which we negotiate our interrelation with – indeed, our inseparability from – others, with all the care and constraint that relation entails, while accepting difference and conflict as integral to our communion.

Nelson was in conversation with Amelia Abraham, author of Queer Intentions (Picador).
