Eugene Gloria's new book, Hoodlum Birds, demonstrates a central quality of poetry: depth of language, the power to get past the first surfaces of words and of things," wrote Robert Pinsky in the April 9 Washington Post. Drivers at the Short-Time Motel, (Penguin Books), won the Asian American Literary Award in 2001. It also was selected for the 1999 National Poetry Series.
