Li-Young Lee is an award-winning poet and author. His collections of poetry include Rose (1986), The City in Which I Love You (1990), and Book of My Nights.
His poems have been described as "filled with lush images redolent of a mystical life well lived," by Poets and Writers magazine, while The Georgia Review says, "In an age when poetry is cautious, poems like Lee's move beyond the pale. . . . Sensuous and alive, they celebrate innocence and achieve wisdom."
