The Queen of the Night
Alexander Chee

Omschrijving

Praise for The Queen of the Night "A night at an opera you'll wish never-ending." - Helen Oyeyemi, author of Boy, Snow, Bird and Mr. Fox " The Queen of the Night is an astonishing universe into which its lucky readers can dissolve completely, metamorphosing alongside its shapeshifting protagonist. Lilliet Berne steals her name from a gravestone and launches into a life of full-throated song; her voice is an intoxicant, and this book is a glorious performance. Chee's enveloping, seductive prose is perfectly matched to the circus world of the opera." - Karen Russell, New York Times best-selling author of Swamplandia and Vampires in the Lemon Grove "A luminous tale of power and passion. Chee gives us an unforgettable heroine and a rich cast of characters-many of them real historical figures. The story dazzles and surprises right up until the final page." - J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times best-selling author of Maine and The Engagements "One doesn't so much read Alexander Chee's The Queen of the Night as one is bewitched by it. Beneath its epic sweep, gorgeous language, and haunting details is the most elemental, and eternal, of narratives: that of the necessities and perils of self-reinvention, and the sorrow and giddiness of aspiring to a life of artistic transcendence." - Hanya Yanagihara, author of A Little Life and The People in the Trees "Alexander Chee packs his extraordinary second novel, The Queen of the Night, to the seams with music, love, misery, and secrets. The kind of book-world-characters-you could live inside, happily, for days and days and never once want to come up for air." - Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble and Magic for Beginners "Chee's lush and sweeping second novel uses a strikingly different setting from Edinburgh, his accomplished debut, but shares its musical themes and boldness...Chee's voice, at once dreamy and dramatic, never falters; Lilliet's cycle of reinventions is a moving meditation on the transformative power of fate, art, time, and sheer survival."- Publishers Weekly "Life as opera: the intrigues and passions of a star soprano in 19th-century Paris...Richly researched, ornately plotted, this story demands, and repays, close attention." - Kirkus, STARRED "We've been awaiting Chee's sophomore novel, and here it finally is! A sweeping historical story...and the kind I personally love best, with a fictional protagonist moving among real historical figures. Lilliet Berne is a diva of 19th-century Paris opera on the cusp of world fame, but at what cost? Queen of the Night traffics in secrets, betrayal, intrigue, glitz, and grit. And if you can judge a book by its cover, this one's a real killer." - The Millions
