  • Jee Leong Koh is the author of three books of poems, the most recent being Seven Studies for a Self Portrait (Bench Press). Born and raised in Singapore, he read English at Oxford University and studied Creative Writing at Sarah Lawrence College. He now lives in New York City.

    'The Singapore-born poet's first UK publication is disciplined yet adventurous in form, casual in tone and deeply personal in subject matter. Koh's verse addresses the split inheritance of his postcolonial upbringing , as well as the tension between an émigré's longing for home and rejection of nostalgia'
