Hear In The City’s Host Sara Harris spoke with Los Angeles based author Helie Lee. Lee’s 1.5 generation Korean American who several years ago spent two harrowing years in China and in Seoul planning to help her mother’s family defect from North Korea. She wrote a best-selling book about the experience called “In the Absence of Sun” and a memoir of her family’s life during the Korean War called “Still Life with Rice.” Helie’s latest undertaking is a one-woman theater performance that mixes documentary and fiction video about her journey to present herself as a man. Macho Like Me opens world wide on January 14th 2011, in Los Angeles California.
