Boswell presents an event with Don Lee, whose new story collection, The Partition, explores Asian American identity, spanning decades and continents. For this event, Lee will be in conversation with UWM Professor of English Liam Callanan, author of Paris by the Book.
This is Lee's first collection of stories since Yellow! From Jennifer Egan: "The Partition is flat-out brilliant: a witty, kaleidoscopic tear through questions of race and identity in America today by a writer who has wrought luminous fiction from these issues for years. Don Lee’s collection offers vivid, entertaining proof that ethnicity is never straightforward or easy—no matter who we are, or where we stand."
Don Lee is the author of the story collection Yellow and the novels Country of Origin, Wrack and Ruin, The Collective, and Lonesome Lies Before Us. He has received an American Book Award, the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature, and the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction. He lives in Baltimore with his wife, the writer Jane Delury, and teaches in the MFA program in creative writing at Temple University in Philadelphia.
