Her own life spanning both sides of the Pacific, Korean writer Krys Lee’s first book, Drifting House, deals with the complex dynamic between her homeland and migrant Korean communities in the US. She has first-hand experience of this, being born in Seoul and raised in the US.
Her other writing has appeared in numerous publications, including the Kenyon Review, New Statesman, and Condé Nast Traveller. She was a finalist for Best New American Voices in 2006 and has been shortlisted for the BBC International Short Story Prize 2012. (Adapted from www.singaporewritersfestival.com)
