NYQ Books Announces the Release of Iris Lee's Urban Bird Life

02/11/2010
NYQ Books is pleased to announce the release of Iris Lee's Urban bird Life. Swans, owls, and other urban birds soar through the poems in Iris Lee's first collection taking the reader along with them as she covers a broad range in her exploration of the interiors and exteriors of her much-loved New York City. From descriptions of city streets to the Atlantic shores, to a lazy morning in bed with a lover, Lee delves into distances both temporal and spatial, connections both erotic and familial, and moments that are both ecstatic and dreadful all the while sustaining a frank, intense, and lyrical voice—which kicks ass when needed.
