Gold Passage was chosen for the Trio Award by Ross Gay, who said of her collection: "There is so much to admire in Gold Passage: the precise music; the strangeness and mystery; the deep wonder expressed in straight narratives and interior, chambered lyrics; a big human heart trying to make some sense of the unknowable world.  And too, magical outbursts of image and song--'I bloomed like a goddamned hyacinth' - to which I say Amen."

​There's a Ghost in this Machine of Air
  tells the untold history of Western  Sonoma County from the  Gravenstein Apple to the  Laguna de Santa Rosa. 

"The first bite of a tangy Gravenstein apple or a stroll through the pastoral beauty of the Laguna de Santa Rosa might never be the same after one reads Iris Jamahl Dunkle’s new book of poetry, There’s a Ghost in this Machine of Air. Dunkle, who lives in Sebastopol, weaves prose, history and imagination together to create a vibrant collection of poems celebrating the west county’s past and present. 'History is part of what I breathe,' Dunkle said. 'It haunts me daily, in a good way.'"
​from "Haunting poems give texture to Sonoma County history" by Ariana Reguzzoni
