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)

Book Description

An extraordinarily ambitious big American novel about a young artist and the worlds she encounters in New York and Rome in the mid-1970s - by turns underground, elite, dangerous
