I have a new novel coming out in February of 2016 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. You can pre-order it or mark as “to-read” over here at Goodreads. For inquiries about appearances and foreign rights, please contact Michelle Bonanno, my publicist at Houghton, or my agent, Jin Auh at the Wylie Agency.

I also recommend a copy of my first novel at your favorite retailer of choice.


Edinburgh is in print from the good people at Picador. Here are some reactions to it:

…Alexander Chee’s incomparable Edinburgh, because of its bravery, its wisdom, its vitality, and because it’s a novel that never stops haunting.

— Junot Diaz, over at GQ’s 21 Books from the 21st Century That Every Man Should Read.

Alexander Chee is the best new novelist I’ve seen in some time. Edinburgh is moody, dramatic—and pure.

— Edmund White

Edinburgh has the force of a dream and the heft of a life. And Alexander Chee is a brilliant new writer.

— Annie Dillard

Haunting… complex… sophisticated. [Chee] says volumes with just a few incendiary words.

— The New York Times Book Review

A coming-of-age novel in the grand Romantic tradition, where passions run high, Cupid stalks Psyche, and love shares the dance floor with death . . . A lovely, nuanced, never predictable portrait of a creative soul in the throes of becoming.

— The Washington Post Book World

Chee is a gifted, poetic writer who takes big risks…This novel marks the debut of a major talent whose career will bear watching.

— Publishers Weekly

A striking debut…A complex story told with skill and intensity, but also filled with moments when agony and extraordinary beauty somehow coexist.

— Kirkus Reviews

A complex, sophisticated, elegant investigation of trauma and desire – like a white hot flame.

— Joyce Hackett, in the Guardian UK
