The body frequently escapes her but is always very much present in these compellingly vivid, clear-eyed essays on an embodied self in flight through the world, from the brilliant young writer Ellena Savage. These essays traverse cities and spaces, bodies and histories, moving through forms and modes to find a closer kind of truth.

Summary

‘I mean who cares about opinions, gossip, whatever, when bodies are so vulnerable, in search only of love and breath.’

Brilliant young writer Ellena Savage explores Portuguese police stations and Portland college campuses, suburban Melbourne libraries and wintry Berlin apartments. 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. Blueberries is ripe with acid, promise, and sweetness.

Praise for Yellow City:

‘And it’s so funny! So snide and clever and irreverent.’
