"Haunting . . .complex . . . sophisticated . . . [Chee] says volumes with just a few incendiary words." --New York Times "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." --Washington Post "Lyrical . . . arresting . . . compelling . . . Edinburgh is beautifully imagined and executed . . . Profound and poetic . . . Chee's is a voice worth listening to." --San Francisco Chronicle "Edinburgh has the force of a dream and the heft of a life. And Alexander Chee is a brilliant new writer." --Annie Dillard "Alexander Chee gets my vote for the best new novelist I've read in some time. Edinburgh is moody, dramatic--and pure." --Edmund White "Few coming-of-age novels truly stir one's emotions or lead readers to consider the trauma of their own lives. Edinburgh does both." --Newsday
