9780099586982: The Flamethrowers

* Shortlisted for the Folio Prize 2014*

*Longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction*

Reno mounts her motorcycle and sets a collision course for New York.

In 1977 the city is alive with art, sensuality and danger. She falls in with a bohemian clique colonising downtown and the lines between reality and performance begin to bleed.

A passionate affair with the scion of an Italian tyre empire carries Reno to Milan, where she is swept along by the radical left and drawn into a spiral of violence and betrayal.

The Flamethrowers is an audacious novel that explores the perplexing allure of femininity, fakery and fear. In Reno we encounter a heroine like no other.

Recensione:

" 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)

Descrizione del libro:

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
