"Smart, irreverent, often unnerving, these sonnets smirk, smile, argue and bless. Jee Leong Koh has taken a month of days and rendered a very contemporary version of the artist as a young man. Cash in your paycheck and buy this book."--Marie Howe

About the author (2007)

In 2006 the Singaporean government banned the reading of his poem, "Come on, straight boy, and make gay love with me" (from this book) at ContraDiction, the second national gay pride poetry reading. The ban makes Jee Leong Koh out to be more dangerous than he is. Born in Singapore, he read English at Oxford University and studied creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College. He now lives in New York City, and blogs at SONG OF A REFORMED HEADHUNTER (http: //jeeleong.blogspot.com). He is the author of a second book of poems EQUAL TO THE EARTH
