    Decimal Places: Poems

    Ricardo De Ungria

    Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1991
    A Filipino’s first encounter with America is at the heart of this collection. He stayed there (St. Louis, Missouri) for three years, meeting people and making friends, traveling whenever he could, and cultivating the peripatetic and peregrine in himself, and gathering a rich hoard of experiences that found expression not only in this book but also in his subsequent books. This book dramatizes one Filipino’s first flush of excitement at being in the land of his neighbors’ dreams, and the experiences left an indelible mark on his impressionable spirit.
