An unjustly lost masterpiece of art, ideals, and philosophy by one of the important American writers you might not have heard of.

is one of the best works of criticism in recent memory.  Nelson
examines everything from Yoko Ono’s weird performance art to the
contemporary horror flick in a sweeping attempt to understand the nature
of cruelty in art and determine how moral beings might navigate a world
enriched and complicated by it.  Her voice is incendiary, sensitive,
and thoroughly unpretentious.  Though I was a fan way back at Jane: A Murder, The Art of Cruelty put Maggie Nelson on the map as a thinker to watch.Kim
