Kim Gek Lin Short

Kim Gek Lin Short is the author of China Cowboy and The Bugging Watch & Other Exhibits (Tarpaulin Sky Press) and the chapbook editions Run and The Residents. Her work has been described as stealing back “for prose both the compressed sounds of poetry and the tugs and pangs of story” (The Denver Quarterly) and as “multilevel formal hybridity” that moves “freely between the grotesque and the surreal” (American Book Review). Kim’s work is anthologized in I Know What’s Best For You (McSweeney’s), Asian Anglophone (Dusie), Narrative (Dis)Continuties (Moria), &Now Awards (Lake Forest), Electric Gurlesque (Saturnalia), and others. Her poems appear in journals such as American Poetry Review, BOMB, and Pen America.
