Cover of: Zero Gravity | Eric Gamalinda

About the Book

“These are the words of someone who understands that language holds much more than words; within the syllables, consonants and vowels, there are counties, islands, loved ones, histories of loss and recovery . . . Gamalinda’s poetry is lyrical, at times even mystical, yet somehow, it is never sentimental or nostalgic — the downfall of well-traveled poets. Rather, his is the voice of one who, in his writing, had dared to approach zero gravity, and is not afraid to fly.” —Pacific Reader

“‘Like the earth on its silver axis,’ Eric Gamalinda’s poems spin into a ‘light that is our consolation,’ and are all the more moving for their startling recognition that ‘the jacaranda in bloom is changing the landscape of Los Angeles.’ These are wonderful, luminous poems.” —Arthur Sze

“I had the opportunity to read with Eric Gamalinda in 1997. His poems immediately interested me. Zero Gravity is a wonderful book of poems. The poems possess a vulnerability and an openness. They lean importantly into their subject without becoming self-important. Eric Gamalinda’s attention and spirit are vibrant.” —Michael Burkard
