The Bureau and Publication Studio proudly present the NYC book launch of Joon Oluchi Lee‘s Lace Sick Bag.

With Lace Sick Bag, Joon Oluchi Lee offers thirteen hard, delicate, and sweet stories for you to wear close to your skin. Borne from a desire to embody femininity, these are stories that sound and feel like women. They traverse opposite coasts of bodily existence, as men turn into women, women turn into men, children become mothers, mothers become children. (And geographic coasts as well: New York and San Francisco turn into each other.) They burrow deep into the psyche and then spring out to teach you how to glimmeringly show your insides on the outside.

Joon Oluchi Lee (@girlscallmurder) is a feminist text and body maker, and a professor of Gender and Performance at Rhode Island School of Design. He is the author of “The Joy of the Castrated Boy” and lipstickeater.blogspot.com. Joon was grown and educated in Seoul, Iowa City, Charlottesville, and San Francisco. He lives in Providence and Brooklyn with his partner.
