Amanda Lee Koe, Author

By the Book: Delayed Rays of a Star

It all begins with one photo and three women: Marlene Dietrich, Anna May Wong, and Leni Riefenstahl. From there, Amanda Lee Koe's first novel branches out to explore the stories of their lives and their choices, and the smaller, no less important stories of outsiders living in their wake. We speak to Amanda about Old Hollywood and its allure, and the process behind writing this intricate, dreamy book. And then! We catch up with some correspondence we received recently.
