Congratulations to Robert Polito!

The many poets who dressed up for the 2011 "Come as You Noir" night -- opening event of "Night and the City: L.A. Noir in Poetry, Fiction and Film" -- will have fond memories of poet, essayist and biographer Robert Polito, whose numerous distinguished publications on film noir and noir authors made him a perfect choice to inaugurate the 25-event series. 

This year, the venerated Poetry Foundation ( ) announced they had selected Robert Polito as the second president in the organization's history, and he has recently stepped into that position. 

During his visit Mr. Politio expressed to us his affection for Los Angeles, and we at Beyond Baroque are delighted that this good fortune has come to a writer we know and admire.
