Daniel W.K. Lee's first collection of poetry is a study on desire's limbs, its breath, its unchecked tendencies on creatures-mortal and divine-who dare to love or be loved. Eros to agape, melancholia to saudade, he finds fruit in these conditions and exposes with carefully selected words and deliberate silence, our hunger.


Daniel W.K. Lee is the author of the Anatomy of Want, published in November 2019 by Rebel Satori Press’ Queer Mojo imprint. A third-generation refugee of Cantonese-Chinese background, he was born in Kuching, Malaysia, raised in Chicagoland, grew the fuck up in New York City, embraced the outdoors and spinsterhood in Seattle, and now resides in the magical city of New Orleans with is his aesthetic powerhouse of a dog Camden. He earned his MFA in Creative Writing at The New School and has been widely published in online and print publications, including the Lambda Literary Award-nominated anthology Take Out: Queer Writing from Asian Pacific America, the Lambda Literary Award-winning anthology I Do/I Don’t: Queers on Marriage, and most recently: LoveJets: Queer Male Poets on 200 Years of Walt Whitman, as well as Berkeley Poetry Review, Floating Bridge Review, White Stag, Fourteen Hills, and the UK’s Oxford Poetry and Agenda.
