Poetry. "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.
Eric Gudas was born in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1972. His poems, essays, and interviews with American poets have appeared in The American Poetry Review, Crazyhorse, The Iowa Review, The Southern Review, Poetry Flash, and other journals. He is the author of the full-length collection BEST WESTERN AND OTHER POEMS (Silverfish Review Press, 2010) and the chapbook BEAUTIFUL MONSTER (Swan Scythe Press, 2003). He and his wife, Alyssa Sherwood, live with their daughter in Los Angeles.
