Richard Chiem - King of Joy

Corvus has always had an overactive imagination. Growing up, she develops a unique coping mechanism: she can imagine herself out of any situation, no matter how terrible. When a sinister plot of greed and betrayal is revealed, Corvus fights to reclaim her independence, and discovers she is stronger than she could have imagined. Written in Richard Chiem's singular style, King of Joy is equal parts sledgehammer and sweet song, a neon, pulsing portrait of grief.
