City Lights just published Alli Warren's first book, Here Come the Warm Jets — that sentence alone tells you what promise this amazing young poet has. She's long been an all-star of the zine/small press scene and this book is really something: Full of swagger and revelations, her use of language resonates with the academics, but she's loaded up with popular culture and a young hip mind that doesn't shy away from personal experience. Without a doubt she is one of the best young writers in the Bay Area. This is her City Lights release party, and it's going to be a night to remember. "We dance in a circle around the debris/ to make real the horrors of accumulation/ and go off content with the little party."
