Poetry. Young Adult. HUMBERT SUMMER is a book about the febrile matter of fantasy in its rawest form alternately subversive, awkward, romantic, and unsettling. Written between the ages of sixteen and twenty-three, the poems in A.K. Blakemore's debut full-length collection navigate the challenging space between adolescence and adulthood in a culture quick to dismiss, commodify, or fetishise the female body and imagination.
