Reviews

"Shimmering, seductive characters dance across the pages of City of Night Birds, immersing you in the ecstatic, brutal world of a prima ballerina fulfilling her most beautiful and terrible ambitions. In this absorbing and passionate novel, Juhea Kim writes with fierce emotional intelligence about the darkness and desire that drive art and love, asking, What does it take to live a life beyond your wildest dreams?" -- Meng Jin, author of Self-Portrait with Ghost
