Go Away With ... Kalliope Lee
An American expat residing overseas in London, Kalliope Lee makes her novel debut with "Sunday Girl" (Psychopomp Press). Set in 1991 Seoul, the book tells the story of two college-age friends struggling to live with the violent attack they both survived. One of the young women becomes obsessed with the plight of Korea's "comfort women" -- girls who were forced into sexual slavery to serve the Japanese Army during World War II. The other woman seeks to piece together the story of her past, something her parents had always been evasive about. For more information about Lee, you may visit her website at http://www.kalliopelee.com/.
