queenandedinburgh_200wAlexander Chee is an award-winning author of two novels. The Queen of the Night is set in Paris during the Second Empire and follows the rise of heroine Lilliet Berne from courtesan to diva. Called “spellbinding” by BuzzFeed and “brilliant” by the Washington Post, The Queen of the Night is a blazing portrait of a woman who creates her own fate. Edinburgh, newly reissued in paperback, is a coming-of-age novel that is “incomparable . . . because of its bravery, its wisdom, its vitality, and because it’s a novel that never stops haunting.” (Junot Díaz)
