Eric Chock's second poetry collection, both intensely personal and historically expansive, tells of childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and return to home and family. Structured in four parts, each section reads as a part of the life cycle and as a sort of poetic historical document, chronicling one man's experience of Hawaiʻi in the past 40 years. "Last Days Here is a rich collection. Its scope of experience, private and public, is wide and ambitious . . . and the transcendence he [Chock] experiences is not a condition of art alone but of simply being alive and open."
—The Honolulu Star Bulletin
"Chinese Fireworks Banned in Hawaiʻi," selected for the Pushcart Prize XVI, 1991.
