"There is, it seems, an invisible question mark behind America's Favorite Poem. What is it, who writes it? Jason Koo's ruminations are capacious enough to consider a Jumbotroned Jay Z, the BQE and LeBron James's elbow yet intimate enough to ask "whether I'll ever feel like I have enough, whether I am enough." America's Favorite Poem is full irreverent swag and swagger, but it's ultimately Koo's exploration of what we consume and what consumes us that makes this book such a provocative and mesmerizing achievement." Terrance Hayes "How would Whitman have written if he were the offspring of Stan Getz and Kim Gordon? The answer is like Jason Koo, but not the entire answer-alongside the jazz and propulsion of these muscular poems is a commanding voice that is at once comical and intimate. America's Favorite Poem is a brazen collection that swaggers as it sings." David Hernandez.
