Description


This is a book about California. Specifically, this first volume is about Northern California, the wet part of the state, the green part, a place where redwoods reign and fog is common. From 2009-2013, Jacqueline Suskin lived in Humboldt County, on the edge of the continent, writing poetry. In this collection, we come to know her as a lover of land, a steward, and an ecstatic earth worshiper. This book is a personal narrative, a selection of formative memories, but most importantly it's a shared compendium of terrain, an atlas of verse that offers each reader a retreat, and a pathway to access this sacred landscape that provides us with so much.

About the Author


Jacqueline Suskin is the author of The Collected, a book of narrative poems paired with found photographs, and Go Ahead & Like It, a self-help book that explores the healing power and artistry of positive list making. Known for her multidisciplinary work with a project she calls Poem Store, Suskin composes improvisational poetry for patrons who choose both a topic and a price in exchange for a unique verse. She regularly brings poetry into classrooms around the country and was honored by Michelle Obama at the White House as a Turnaround Artist. Suskin is based in Los Angeles, but considers the entire state of California her home.
