Reviews

"Jennifer Ruth Jackson's poems refuse platitudes, trouble assumptions. The poems hold to the light illness, grief, and the mind and body of a disabled speaker. Pain, here, is singular, not universal. Stunning language is also present. A name 'raises hives' on arms, there's a 'door to your mother's voice.' This is a candid and lyrical book-a remarkable contribution to literature of the body."

-Eduardo C. Corral, author of Guillotine


"Jennifer Ruth Jackson's poems are dynamite. They reach back to our disabled elders and forward to a future where we 'steal clouds to write / obscenities to the waning moon.' I love this book and its expansive spirit. Jennifer Ruth Jackson is already on the vanguard as a publisher of many disabled poets. And Domestic Bodies shows her incredible skill as a poet."

-The Cyborg Jillian Weise, author of Common Cyborg
