'Shia LaBeouf' is the new poetry collection from the startling voice of A.
K. Blakemore. Delivered with succinct precision and bright salient menace in her inimitable style-each poem suspends from the space around it with unapologetic leavings that will reside with you.
Here, every detail crackles and comes at you sideways; a bad poem is dedicated to William Faulkner (and also your mother) - we are shown male models dancing to Roxy Music - a crosswise salver - a drinking spider - a sparrow's wet dream and an altercation at a South London pub.
A. K. Blakemore's latest offering will take readers into a burnished and strange place. 'Shia LaBeouf' cements her reputation as an electrifying voice in British poetry. 'if you're reading this, Shia, you've an advocate and friend in me'
