About Xing:

"Debora Kuan's Xing is novelistic in its scope. From "Articles of Faith" to "How to Make Bells," with numerous parabolic twists and turns, Xing unmasks at times the almost unsayable. This is a beautiful, necessary, veracious voice assaying the vagaries of contemporary life and culture illuminated by flashes of history. "
—Mark Levine

"Descriptive power, clear seeing, vivid, various material--Debora Kuan's poems have everything. She is a provocative and deeply rewarding poet."
—Jonathan Galassi

"As Andre Breton's epigraph proposes that "everything beyond is here in this life," Debora Kuan's marvelous debut book of poems, Xing, contains multitudes in this singular collection where the quotidian is replete with unexpected crossings and surreal transformations."
—Arthur Sze
