Reviews

  • One doesn't so much read The Queen of the Night as one is bewitched by it

    Hanya Yanagihara, author of the Man Booker shortlisted 'A Little Life'
  • A wild opera of a novel and the perfect summer read: swift, smart, immersive and gorgeous

    Guardian
  • A celebration . . . of creativity, ingenuity, endurance, mastery and grace

    New York Times
  • A more impressive, richly imagined novel I have not read in many years. From its heroine's first entrance, The Queen of the Night grabbed me and kept me rapt as it writhed and contorted its way through love and murder, courtesans and empresses, fates and curses

    Financial Times
  • A masterfully written book. Chee, just, is masterful. I loved this novel

    Roxane Gay
  • An epic novel, brilliantly extravagant

    Vogue
  • Lush and sweeping . . . A moving meditation on the transformative power of fate, art, time, and sheer survival

    Publishers Weekly
  • Sprawling, soaring, bawdy and plotted like a fine embroidery

    National Public Radio
  • It just sounds terrific. It sounds like opera

    New Yorker
  • A night at an opera you'll wish never-ending

    Helen Oyeyemi, author of 'Boy, Snow, Bird' and 'Mr. Fox'
