"Jennifer Kwon Dobbs writes a harrowing poem of very precise measurements or hidden operations in lyric wheelwork, but if you’re thinking of clocks and time, please, rather think of space. Think of Wallace Stevens worrying about the traversing of the void, yes, folded and jeweled like time."

-Norman Dubie, author of The Quotations of Bone

"Jennifer Kwon Dobbs writes visceral and intelligent poems about an unending war and its many consequences, for Koreans and Americans, for women and children, for orphans and adoptees. Her work is a painful, eloquent reminder about how dividing a country also divides families and selves."

-Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of The Sympathizer

“Like a good poet, Dobbs chooses her words with great intention. She wishes to put incomplete information together with missing parts, but she also seeks to suture space, hemming air and emptiness back together ... stitching and sewing parts of the body to make them whole again.”
