About the Book

“Dobbs is an astonishing poet. The poetry in Paper Pavilion is by turns lyric and incisive, operatic and sweeping. There is a resonant passion that fills every page. With this heartbreaking and exhilarating debut, Dobbs has established herself as one of the most compelling and important poets of her generation.”—David St. John

Paper Pavilion captures the theme of transnational adoption and a powerful search for a personal history and identity from Korea to America.

Jennifer Kwon Dobbs is currently an Edwin Mem fellow in literature and creative writing at the University of Southern California.
