Poetry. Asian American Studies. In her second book-length collection, Sueyeun Juliette Lee suggests that suicide, K-pop, tourism, and atomic explosions have emerged as expressions of the forces upholding untenable national imaginations. Go underground with her and enter into a subterranean consideration of how History collides with human memory to generate new, unseen currents for being.


Sueyeun Juliette Lee grew up three miles from the CIA. She teaches poetry at the University of Pittsburgh and edits Corollary Press, a chapbook series devoted to multi-ethnic innovative writing. She is also a contributing editor at EOAGH and co-curates the multi-genre reading and performance series POETRY ((PRO) (FANA)). She is the author of two full-length collections of poetry, THAT GORGEOUS FEELING (Coconut Press, 2008) and UNDERGROUND NATIONAL (Factory School, 2010).
