Blueberries by Ellena Savage- Our Review
Blueberries by Ellena Savage is an incredible book pushing the boundaries of classification. But one thing that it can be classified as is: a brilliant collection of writing that is a wonderfully breathtaking read.
Part memoir, part essays and a varied collection of stories, Savage reflects on her life, slowing and stopping to muse on what it all might mean.
Not merely content to live a life unexamined, the book is personal, poetic and unique. A wondering of what it means to be woman, and what this looks like in the world around us.
“What kind of a body makes a memoir”, asks Savage?
Savage speaks of bodies in love, and in pain, bodies at rest and at work. Travelling through Portuguese police stations, Portland college campuses to outer suburban Melbourne libraries and into the apartments of Berlin.
A book, not quite like anything I’ve read. Exciting, and awe inspiring.
