"Distillate, metamorphic, these elegant poems by Tung-Hui Hu work magic on the page. In an age, too often, of surfeit and stall, they chart the deft alignments of silence and sublimity, minimal brush stroke and maximal wit, the deadpan ad-lib and the swerve of philosophic penetration. The Book of Motion is above all motion of mind: a joyous—and joy-engendering—debut."
—Linda Gregerson, winner of the 2003 Kingsley Tufts Award
"A splendidly elegant work of poetry and prose."
—Clarence Brown, Trenton Times
