Chang-rae Lee made his mark on the literary scene when he was 29 years old, with the novel "Native Speaker" about a Korean-American spy. His Korean roots and his immigrant parents' struggle for assimilation continue to play a role in his work. The Princeton creative writing professor talks about his writing, and his new dystopian novel, "On Such a Full Sea."
