"The many fans of Bao Phi will be thrilled by this book. New readers will be seduced by his trademark blend of passion, politics, and poetry. His poems alternate between the profane and the provocative as they deal with war and history, love and heartbreak, the inner city and the inner self. A powerful read, a gutsy writer."-- Viet Thanh Nguyen

"Bao Phi's Thousand Star Hotel is a vividly inward look at an Asian American experience that never flinches from the hard realizations of humanity. Bao ties generations together at his personal crossroad of fatherhood and lets the reader see, feel, and hear the electricity of his renowned stage performance blossoming on the page. Bao's poems haunt our collective American psyche until a 'new region of the tongue is discovered' that lets us know what 'tastes like the middle of the crosshairs of a drone bomber / tastes like science concocting survival.'" --Tyehimba Jess, author of Olio
