Luke Jerod Kummer is a writer and an editor. His work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, New Republic, the Washingtonian, Bloomberg Businessweek, the Village Voice, Literary Hub and The Millions. In 2015, he was honored to edit Shanoor Seervai's bestselling nonfiction Kindle Single, Daughters of the Red Light, the story of a Wall Street Journal reporter's return to India and her struggle to chronicle the lives of women and children in Mumbai's red light district. Kummer's new historical novel, The Blue Period, reimagines the tragic events coloring the somber-toned palette that a young Pablo Picasso used for painting portraits of shared suffering and despair during the first years of the 20th century, before a shift to Cubism transformed the artist into an international celebrity.
