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, and an artist. It is both a memoir and an interrogation of memoir. Drawing comparisons to Maggie Nelson, Leslie Jamison, Ada Calhoun and Eula Biss, this 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?
