In her remarkable debut collection of short stories, Drifting House (Viking Penguin), Korean-American Krys Lee explores trans-nationalism. Lee talks about immigrants who lead two lives – the life they left behind and the new life they can't quite inhabit. Her characters yearn to find their souls and transcend imposed categories of immigrant identity.
