Best Western and Other Poems
by Eric Gudas
Award Winner: 2008

Like a wine crafted by sturdy Franciscan monks in southern France, bottled by a crack team of Swiss psychotherapists, and kept in a temperature-controlled vault in the sub-cellar, Eric Gudas has been one of my secret favorite poets for a long time. This careful, rich collection makes his playful, anguished, perceptive and humane poems available at last. Best Western and Other Poems is a fine varietal-with hints of cello, playground, and boudoir. This book is full of terrific, distinctive poems, and you will love it. It's that simple. - Tony Hoagland
