Daniel Wah Keung Lee (1978–present) is an writer/poet/cultural critic known for his poetry book Anatomy of Want.[1]


Daniel Wah Keung Lee was born Lý Phụ Cường (in Vietnamese), 李富強 (in Chinese), and later corrected/changed to 李華強 / 李华强 (Traditional Chinese/Simplified Chinese) in Kuching, Malaysia to ethnic Cantonese Chinese refugee parents from Vietnam. Because his grandparents on both paternal and maternal sides were refugees from China to Vietnam, Lee has identified as third-generation refugee. Raised as a child in Forest Park, IL and later in Downers Grove, IL outside Chicago with his older and younger sisters, he moved to New York City in 1996 to attend New York University, where he received his BA at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study. In 2006, Lee earned his MFA in Creative Writing at The New School. He currently lives in New Orleans, Louisiana with this whippet dog named Camden.[2]

Lee is a former roommate of Annapurna Potluri Schreiber, author of The Grammarian, both of whom attended the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU.


Daniel W.K. Lee published his first book of poetry Anatomy of Want with QueerMojo, an imprint of Rebel Satori Press[3]
