 photo 0fcd4e86-ac8b-492a-94f1-c03fa8d89975.jpg My name is Elizabeth Yoo. I'm currently an intern at PEN American Center and frequently contribute to their tumblr blog. I'm currently helping out with an upcoming Shirley Clarke documentary as well. As a writer of short fiction and poetry, I am influenced by hard-boiled American detective novels, film noir, beat poetry, Greek/Roman mythology, and the musical prose of bebop. I have a B.A. in English and a B.A. in Cinema and Cultural Studies. My idols are Raymond Chandler, Jean-Pierre Melville, Frank Sinatra, and James Bond. I love painting, photography, 1950s-1970s TV shows, gangster films, Italian neorealism, French and Japanese New Wave, surrealism, and poetic realism. I collect pulp paperbacks and pulp magazines. I am based in NY. Feel free to follow me on twitter, pinterest and instagram: lejazznik. tumblr hit counter
