Synopsis: Named one of Los Angeles Times Book Critic David Ulin's "Top 10 Books of 2015", Wide Awake draws together nationally acclaimed poets and gifted newer writers—one hundred twelve poets of Los Angeles and its surrounding territories—whose work speaks to the humanity, pathos and comedy, of what may be the most romanticized and scorned, disparaged and exalted, of the world’s great cities. With respect to style, the selections range from the narrative to the more open-ended or non-sequential, classic formal verse to robust vernacular, and in this way speak to the lively state of North American poetry in our age. Poets include David St. John, Wanda Coleman, Cecilia Woloch, Lynne Thompson, Timothy Steele, Kate Gale, Gail Wronsky, Terry Wolverton, Luis J. Rodriguez, Tony Barnstone, Robin Coste Lewis, William Archila and Melissa Roxas.

About the Author: As a writer, poet and influential teacher with the UCLA Extension Writers program, Suzanne Lummis is among the best-known figures in the Los Angeles literary community. She was among the principal avatars of the Los Angeles and Long Beach-based movement of the 90s, Stand-up Poetry, and her poems and essays are associated with noir poetry, a poetry influenced by the dark themes, chiseled beauty and striking dialogue of the black and white crime movies of the 40s and 50s. Her poems have appeared in The Hudson Review, Antioch Review, Hotel Amerika, Ploughshares, New Ohio Review, The New Yorker, and are forthcoming in the excellent online publication, Plume. Her collection Open 24 Hours won the Blue Lynx Prize and was published by Blue Lynx Press in Washington in 2014. Previous books include In Danger (Heyday Books) and Idiosyncrasies (Illuminati). Suzanne received the 2015 George Drury Smith Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Award.
