This book gave me a lot to think about as a reader even while leaving me envious of his crafting of poems. You know you impress another poet when they think,
Wow, I wish I'd written that!
—Anita Endrezze in The Raven Chronicles
McMullin's style is sometimes conversational and performative, and sometimes focused on the poetry on the page. He has some simply stunning images, and I appreciate his refusal of translation. He balances humor, rage, and the erotic through his words.
—Qwo-Li Driskill, co-editor of Sovereign Erotics: A Collection of Two-Spirit Literature
McMullin's Coconut Milk is a brilliant collection of both narrative and avant-garde poems descended from traditional storytelling that give voice to Samoan fa'afafine culture as it continues to flourish in Samoa and in the colonial diaspora.
