"My purpose for this work is [for it] to be used in Asian studies classes because it's loaded with cultural information and historical data. It can't just be a Korean book. It needs to be exposed to American culture and [in] Japan and Hong Kong and China and Taiwan because the Koreans have been so overlooked by history and by the media. At last, people will be able to put a face on us."Lee, Helie is the author of 'Still Life With Rice A Young American Woman Discovers the Life and Legacy of Her Korean Grandmo Ther', published 1997 under ISBN 9780684827117 and ISBN 0684827115.
