Helie Lee is the author of the bestseller Still Life With Rice (Scribner 1996), and In The Absence of Sun (Harmony Books 2002), memoirs in which she chronicles her family’s experience in war-torn Korea from the 1930s to 1997. In The Absence of Sun specifically details her risky attempt to rescue her uncle from North Korea. Inspired by her courageous story, Cosmopolitan Magazine selected Lee as a “Freedom Fighter” out of thousands of women nominated for their "1999 Fun Fearless Female" competition. Both of Lee’s books are currently being used by educators all over the country to teach about Korea.
