Collage of Seoul is a book of poetry tracing the spiritual journey of a man who, unnamed at birth, looks to both Eastern and Western cultures to form an identity through a love story that culminates with the decisive act of naming his two daughters. Through a mix of narrative and lyric poetry, Collage of Seoul transports the reader into a simulated flight between dreamscape and reality, faith and doubt, and allegory and biography as we are invited to explore the dangerous field of investigating who we are and where we come from.
