Eye Level by Jenny Xie

Jenny Xie’s Eye Level has a narrative string that weaves around each poem. Delivering a keen observation or grand truth, her language is florid and beautiful, plucked carefully and crafted with a gentle hand. There’s a delicate balance between ancient wisdom and modern commonplace that binds ceaselessly together. Intensely introspective and refined, Eye Level examines our world through both a critical and appreciative lens, nestling itself into consciousness even after the completion of the book. –Meghan Dairaghi
