Blueberries: essays concerning understanding

£9.99

In Portuguese police stations and Portland college campuses, in suburban Melbourne libraries and wintry Berlin apartments, Ellena Savage shows bodies in pain and in love, bodies at work and at rest. She circles back to scenes of crimes or near-crimes, to lovers or near-lovers, to turn over the stones, re-read the paperwork, check the deeds, approach from another angle altogether. These essays traverse cities and spaces, bodies and histories, moving through forms and modes to find a closer kind of truth.
