"With candor, power, and poignancy, Suzanne Lummis illuminates the glorious absurdities of our lives, especially the pride and paranoia that arise from living in an urban landscape. Nobody can ride a metaphor bareback better than this poet, and nobody delivers her work to the page with as much sass and wry humor. If Los Angeles were to have its own poet laureate, my choice would be Suzanne Lummis."
-David St. John

"If L.A. has anything like a poetry 'community' these days, I think it is in large part owing to the presence of Suzanne Lummis-one of L.A.'s major poetic voices, a highly influential teacher of the art of poetry; a keeper of the dark flame of L.A. noir."
-B. H. Fairchild
