“Jesse Rice-Evans brings you to a forest of shadows on a snow-covered evening. She crafts the door through which you can witness your own inner tempest, the gravitational pull of intimacy. Her writing instills spatial awareness for those working hard to glow in the burgeoning void, a nurturing beauty of the world reflected by the surreal tendencies of the moon and our weeping universe.”
-jordan hoxsie, author of cry lightning
“Jesse Rice-Evans’ Soft Switch is a book about the body. Rice-Evans writes, “My body: the only thing I can talk about with any assurance.” And yet even with that assurance there are questions. The body is a form. How does one fill that form with content? How does one discuss that? What is this form for? What’s it worth? These poems explore the body and its experiences due to the shape it takes on as associated with gender. These pieces are as playful as they are complex. They grow (up) as the body grows and one learns to be/come the body they inhabit.”
-Kenyatta JP Garcia, poet and author of Slow Living
