"Jiwon Choi's I Used To Be Korean is fusion / fusion of memory both real and not / verbal snapshots and within those snapshots / she sees what the rest don't—or may not care to see / the bias of the world / the need for human contact both funny and brutal. oh SHE IS Korean. I Used To Be Korean is simply WONDERFUL."
"One Daughter is Worth Ten Sons" is a collection of poems that "spare no one" and "refuse to flatter". This book "evokes the riddle of our complex, contradictory human selves." --Joan Larkin
