Reviews

In Brain Fever, Kimiko Hahn moves through the rooms of the mind with an oneiric weightlessness. She also touches concrete ground in the realm of neuroscience, and in the world outside the mind, where love, betrayal, regret, and debilitating loss reside. This is a beautiful and troubling book, a marriage of what matters most: the mysteries buried at our very core and the world that cradles and cuts into us at every turn.--Tracy K. Smith
Hahn's poems glow with concentrated energy.-- "Boston Review"
The poems' brevity, precise imagery, and echoing of that imagery will make readers return to the collections, finding new connections each time.-- "Moon City Review"
A juxtaposition of current scientific research on brain function and cognition with . . . a lyrical daydream of loss and resilience. . . . Outstanding.-- "Pleiades"
