Book Synopsis

Ologies is Chelsea Biondolillo's debut chapbook of essays about her relationship as a woman with an interest in science. These memoir-style essays with gruesome imagery form a compelling narrative of Biondolillo's adolescence. Through these descriptions, Biondolillo claims that women can be scientists in a male-dominated, sexist field of study.

Review Quotes

"In four formally inventive essays, Biondolillo dissects the intersections of science and violence, of nature and nurture, always concerned with touch and tactility, the collisions of things. You'll feel it all."

--Sam Martone, An Object You Cannot Lose

"I've always been mesmerized by Chelsea Biondolillo's ability to braid scientific data and observations with such longing, with such a vulnerable self. Here she creates a 'taxonomy for all [her] dark fascinations, ' inviting the reader not to turn away, but to stare, to linger in 'how things were unmade.' These essays showcase the scalpel-like precision of her language along with her skills in setting disparate texts in conversaton. 'I wanted to understand something larger from the seeing, ' she writes, which is exactly what these essays achieve through the lens of Biondolillo's mind. Maybe the simplest way to say it is this: I'm a big fan."

--Jill Talbot, The Way We Weren't: A Memoir

"Biondolillo's collection lacerates several human veins--gendered bodies, personal histories, scientific legacies--with a forceful and fearful precision. Ologies offers a pleasingly gruesome and vitally intimate dissection of the relationship between women, family, and the natural world. These are lyric essays of the sharpest order: astute, penetrating, incandescent."

--Will Slattery, Managing Editor, Essay Daily
