9780966669114: In Danger (The California Poetry Series) (California Poetry Series, V. 2)

The second title in the California Poetry Series. Humor and pathos, grit and glitter meet in these chronicles of Los Angeles noir life and dog days - earthquakes, riots, bars, all-night donut shops. This is not the cherished and envied Hollywood of tabloids but East Hollywood, the low-income, unfashionable side where no movie star deigns to venture. With surprising juxtapositions and the illusion of ease these witty and sometimes scary poems chart Suzanne Lummis' misadventures and liasons dangereuses a the low end of the big city.
