"This book is a wonderful debut collection of prose poems and flash fictions, short short stories of beautiful precisions and understated passions. While the bricks with which Chinquee constructs her fictions - failed or failing relationships, childhood friendships, and the intricacies of family life - are not uncommon, the architecture she creates with them is rare indeed: stories now full of light, now somber, now opening the reader's eyes to an utterly new space."

"Kim Chinquee has the dead-eye aim and the precision with language that makes her stories hit the mark again and again. They explore the jangling nervous system beneath the ordinary surface of the world, and all the irony, shock, sadness, and hope contained therein. Pitch-perfect writing broadcast on a very real, and wonderful, frequency." --Jean Thompson, National Book Award finalist author of Who Do You Love
"Chinquee writes with such precision it stuns how much she gets into a small space. OH BABY will break your heart in one hundred ways, just like that 800-page gorilla you didn't read last week." --Frederick Barthelme, author of sixteen books of fiction and nonfiction including Double Down, and There Must Be Some Mistake
