Winner of the 2009 Yale Younger Poets competition (the oldest annual literary award in the United States), Ken Chen's Juvenilia is jam-packed with writings that, in the words of Louise Gl�ck, "have isolated and dramatized the profound dilemma of the adult's relation to childhood in poems of riveting intelligence and sharp wit and profound beauty." A graduate of the Yale Law School, Ken Chen currently works as director of the Asian American Writers' Workshop in New York.
