About Best Western and Other Poems:

"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

"I’ve been reading Eric Gudas’s poems for years, waiting for them to be collected into a book. And now—cause for celebration—they are! Each of these poems celebrates our aliveness here on earth and stops time long enough for us to realize it. These are love poems of the highest order. They wake me up and make me glad."
—Marie Howe
