The City Lights Pocket Poets Series is a series of poetry collections published by Lawrence Ferlinghetti and City Lights Books of San Francisco since August 1955. The series is most notable for the publication of Allen Ginsberg's literary milestone "Howl", which led to an obscenity charge for the publishers that was fought off with the aid of the ACLU. The series is published in a small, affordable paperback format with a distinctive black and white cover design.

The event isn’t over, but I do have to go, he said, motioning to Lonnie. There were no rich galleons loaded with gold to attack, no merchant ships to hold hostage, no ports to raid. Think of all the awful things we could do if we had a set of sails, said Uma.

46 adventures on the isle of adolescence. In general I would say the list suffers not from what or who is included but from who is left out, either by ignorance, inattention, ill-timing or bad luck (when other publishers beat us to it).

This book is one of my favorites ever. It is funny and lyrical and although LA Loca grew up in an entirely different atmosphere, she speaks to me as well. Failed relationships, fights with your mom, great (quickly over) relationships, very mundane everyday things, made tragedy and comedy. Not your traditional poetry book. I have fond memories of poetry readings among friends on the DC metro commuting from my boring government job.

I was probably too young when I first went to go see this woman read her poetry in Chicago; 16 or seventeen. Probably had never been kissed and listening to poetry about giving head and skateboarding. I probably didn't understand a word of it, but it blew my mind! I bought her book and read it to friends in her same halting, pitching style.
This woman is a genius. She will always be an inspiration to me. My heart will always leap up when I see her name.

The main poem, "Adventures on the Isle Of Adolescence" is the story of a mid-thirties woman who finds herself on a date with an 18 year old skater. A lush use of the english language coupled with a bawdy sense of humor make this an excellent read for anyone who can appreciate the comedy of modern living.
