"'Questionnaire for My Grandfather' is an incredible essay that leaves you shaking your head in amazement at the way Adrian has not only explored the nature of abuse and a legacy of pain, but also just how the second person reveals truths about both the imagined audience and the author herself."
—"Who is the You: Understanding Second Person," William Bradley, Fourth Genre 

"Kim Adrian works her painful subject matter with great care and respect. She knows when reticence will serve as well as declaration"
—"Minds that Matter: Boston's 11 Brightest Scientists, Artists, and Thinkers," Improper Bostonian

“Ms. Adrian is borrowing from the toolbox of a poet, identifying a particularly potent idea and meditating upon it."
