About the Book

In Interrogation Room, Jennifer Kwon Dobbs's second collection, poems that restore redacted speech and traverse forbidden borders suture together divided bodies, geographies, and kinships to confront the unending Korean War's legacies of forced distances and militarized silences. Kwon Dobbs powerfully entwines uneasy, tentative reconciliations among South Korea's relatives in the North, her birth family in the South, and the transnational diaspora to which she belongs to resist the war's deprivations of language and imagination.

About the Book

“How to connect to the past, imagined, researched, and lived? This is the question that Kwon Dobbs asks in her haunting new book.


Jennifer Kwon Dobbs is also the author of Paper Pavilion (White Pine Press Poetry Prize 2007) and the chapbook Notes from a Missing Person (Essay Press 2015). Her work appears in Crazyhorse, Indiana Review, Jubilat, and elsewhere.
