"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.
