Helen Lee b. 1965
My Niagara (1992)
""An inspired and resonant portrait of tenuous teen sensuality emerging from seamless suburban facades." - David McIntosh, Toronto Festival of Festivals

""'My Niagara' is definitely set in Toronto for people who know Toronto. But I wanted it to be read both ways, the character to be either Japanese Canadian or Japanese American. It's also a matter of political self-definition, of what it means to be Asian American or Asian Canadian... It's a matte of dissolving boundaries, about collapsing categories, as much as about self definition." - Helen Lee, Fuse Magazine, Fall 1993
