Jennifer Perrine is a poet of formal agility and surprise, with a command of language that ranges from the spare to the luxuriously rampant, from the scientific to the ecstatic. --Betsy Sholl
In these lusciously languaged poems, Perrine is as grimly witty in grief as in joy, and The Body Is No Machine is a dazzling debut collection. --Cynthia Hogue
Seduced by words, this poet thinks with her whole body. Gender bends so far the barriers between us and within us shift and change. --Peggy Shumaker
