Essays, Language & Writing | On Power and Consent

Blueberries could be described as a collection of essays, the closest term available for a book that resists classification; a blend of personal essay, polemic, prose poetry, true-crime journalism and confession that considers a fragmented life, reflecting on what it means to be a woman, a body, an artist.

It is both a memoir and an interrogation of memoir. It is a new horizon in storytelling. In crystalline prose, Savage explores the essential questions of the examined life: what is it to desire? What is it to accommodate oneself to the world? And at what cost?

Staff Review - Jake

Savage seems to have lived many lives—and in many ways, she has. As an artist, a historian, a real-estate buff, and an enterprising 7/11 snack taste-tester, her stories are multifaceted and sophisticated. Her formless collection of 'essays' redefines memoir as a way of interrogating life rather than recounting it.
