Queen K

Book of the month


What’s the story?

On a balmy evening in late March, Kata hosts a party on her husband’s superyacht. Tables cover the massive deck, adorned with orchids, champagne bottles, name cards of famous people, while uniformed staff flank a red carpet on the landing dock. This night marks the attainment of something she’s wanted for a long time: acceptance into the glittering world of high society. But some around Kata are full of resentment and closer to home than she could have ever imagined. Narrated with unreliability by an Englishwoman employed to tutor this family’s precocious daughter, QUEEN K pulls back the curtain on the power plays within one extraordinary family, as world politics begin to encroach on their corrupt and fiercely defended haven.
