9780099586982: The Flamethrowers
Review:

"Oscillating between the hedonistic New York art world and Italy in the midst of the Years of Lead, The Flamethrowers is that rare thing, a novel that uses recent history not as a picturesque backdrop but as a way of interrogating the present. Kushner's urgent prose and psychological acuity make this one of the most compelling and enjoyable novels I've read this year" Hari Kunzru "The controlled intensity and perception in Rachel Kushner's novels mark her as one of the most brilliant writers of the new century. She's going to be one we turn to for our serious pleasures and for the insight and wisdom we'll be needing in hard times to come. Rachel Kushner is a novelist of the very first order. The Flamethrowers follows Telex from Cuba as a masterful work" Robert Stone "The Flamethrowers lives up to its incendiary title - it is a brilliant, startling truly revolutionary book about the New York art world of the seventies, Italian class warfare, and youth's blind acceleration into the unknown. Kushner is a genius prose stylist, and her Reno is one of the most fully realized protagonists I've ever encountered, moving fluidly from the fringe of the fringe movement to the center of the action. I want to recommend this stunning book to everyone I know" Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia! "Rachel Kushner writes dazzling, sexy, glorious prose. She is as brilliant on men and motorcycles as she is on art and film. The Flamethrowers is an ambitious and powerful novel." Dana Spiotta, author of Eat the Document and Stone Arabia "A high-wire performance worthy of Philippe Petit... Hang on: this is a trip you don't want to miss" -- Ron Charles Washington Post "Wow! What a book! I'm eager for everyone I know to read it. It's an example of the very best in contemporary fiction.a contemporary masterpiece, and it wants you all to read it" -- Josh Ferris "A dazzlingly exciting novel... This is a deeply intelligent and engaging novel that uses all the virtues of old-fashioned storytelling to celebrate the triumphs and absurdities of new-fangled art" -- Jake Kerridge Sunday Express "The Flamethrowers has gained praise from Jonathan Franzen and drawn comparisons with Patti Smith's Just Kids as it epically leaps between the New York art scene of the late 1970s and Italy in the midst of revolution... An essential summer read" Grazia "Exhilirating, psychologically complex, and perfectly intense, this is a thrilling contemporary novel likely to become a cultural touchstone" Flavorwire "A brilliant lightning bolt of a novel" Maud Newton, NPR "In this extremely bold, swashbuckling novel, romantic and disillusioned at once, intellectually daring and even subversive, Rachel Kushner has created the most beguiling American ingenue abroad, well, maybe ever: Daisy Miller as a sharply observant yet vulnerable Reno-raised motorcycle racer and aspiring artist, set loose in gritty 70s New York and the Italy of the Red Brigades" Francisco Goldman, author of Say Her Name "Riveting" Time "Rachel Kushner's The Flamethrowers is remarkable for its expansiveness and for its exhilarating succession of ideas" -- Mark West The List "National Book Award finalist Rachel Kushner brings NYC's art scene to life so well in The Flamethrowers you could get high off the paint" Entertainment Weekly "Fast-paced, sexy and smart" Cosmopolitan "Electric...addictive...smart and satisfying" Oprah Magazine

Review:

" Scintillatingly alive... It ripples with stories, anecdotes, set-piece monologues, crafty egotistical tall tales, and hapless adventures" (James Wood New Yorker)

" Kushner is rapidly emerging as a thrilling and prodigious novelist" (Jonathan Franzen)

" One of the most thrilling and high-octane literary experiences I have had in ages" (Colum McCann Sunday Independent)

" It's so good, it's a little frightening… it makes any fretting over the state of the novel look plain silly" ( Guardian)

" An adrenalin-fuelled coming-of-age novel" ( Sunday Telegraph)

" Unfolds on a bigger, brighter screen than nearly any recent American novel I can remember" ( New York Times)

" An ambitious and serious American novel. The sentences are sharp and gorgeously made. The scope is wide. The political and the personal are locked in a deep and fascinating embrace" ( Colm Tóibín)

" Dazzling... The Flamethrowers is a virtuoso performance; a ride of ache and pleasure, handled with pinpoint command" ( The Times)

"This glittering novel is both carefully structured and exhilarating" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Rachel Kushner’s fearless, blazing prose ignites the 70s New York art scene and Italian underground" ( Vanity Fair)

" A bright burning flame of a novel" ( Spectator)

" The Flamethrowers is a strange, fascinating beast of a novel, brimming with ideas, and sustained by the muscular propulsion of Kushner’s prose… Kushner emerges as a wildly gifted artist filling a sketchbook with thrilling, eye-catching scenes" (Robert Collins Sunday Times)

"There is an exhilarating freedom to Kushner’s writing… Taut, vividly intelligent prose" (David Wolf Prospect)

"Sparky and inventive... a riot of a novel" ( Daily Mail)

"Ms Kushner’s kaleidoscopic prose carries the novel’s shifts in location and person, and the fast-paced rhythm harnesses the thrill of adventure" ( Economist)

" Swells with a daunting bravado" ( Irish Times)
