Hoodlum Birds (Poets, Penguin)


Hoodlum Birds (Poets, Penguin) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Eugene Gloria’s acclaimed first collection of poems, Drivers at the Short-Time Motel, ephemeral lives, and souls lost in the tattered fabric of war, displacement, and ruined love, found hope, redemption, and a common voice. Gloria is interested in illustrating the common man’s search for connection to the self and to the world, and that is very much apparent in his second collection. The speaker of these poems examines his lapsed Roman Catholic identity and his past; Spain, and its long and varied influence on Filipino culture; and the famous pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. These new poems build on what Gloria began in his first book by continuing this sense of collaboration with literary and cultural influence.

About the Author

Eugene Gloria was born in Manila, Philippines, and raised in San Francisco. His first collection of poetry, Drivers at the Short-Time Motel, was a winner of the 1999 National Poetry Series. He teaches at DePauw University.
