Poetry. Asian American Studies. Winner of the Elixir Press 10th Annual Poetry Awards. "SPIT shines. Filled with bravado and brilliance, Lee's debut fills in the blanks it makes profound use of, hollering across the 'rusted hollows.' Utilizing a host of forms—from montage to prose poems, 'Interviews with My [C]orean Father,' to fractured sonnets—Lee echoes and evokes a multitude of identities: writer, sister, 'good girl,' lover. If this is the future of American poetry, as it appears to be, we are in good hands."—Kevin Young
