Order my new book The Edge of the Continent now available from Rare Bird. his 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.
In 2010, Publication Studio of Portland, OR published Jacqueline's first book of poems The Collected. The book is comprised of found photographs that correspond with narrative verse. Click here to view and/or purchase the book from Publication Studio.
In 2014 Ten Speed Press of Penguin Random House published Jacqueline's second book, Go Ahead & Like It. This book discuses the powerful art of writing lists of likes as a form of daily gratitude, a positive meditation, and a creative self-help method. www.goaheadandlikeit.com
