Summer (Desert Pets Press, 2016)
“Stevie Howell’s new chapbook, Summer, explores the hazy summers of youth, where it is possible to slip free from the strict ‘time-bound’ world of high school & family & to try on, & perhaps reject, new identities. Through bike rides, séances, beach fires & ‘scrubbing a urinal at Arby’s,’ the speaker gains insight & self-awareness, slowly, fitfully transitioning from childhood to adulthood.”
