Críticas:

"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

"Rachel Kushner's fearless, blazing prose ignites the 70s New York art scene and Italian underground of The Flamethrowers."--Elissa Schappell "Vanity Fair "

"The Flamethrowers unfolds on a bigger, brighter screen than nearly any recent American novel I can remember. It plays out as if on Imax, or simply higher-grade film stock...Ms. Kushner can really write. Her prose has a poise and wariness and moral graininess that puts you in mind of ....Robert Stone and Joan Didion...[Kushner has] a sensibility that's on constant alert for crazy, sensual, often ravaged beauty...persuasive and moving...provocative."--Dwight Garner "The New York Times "

"[A] big, rich wonder of a novel... [Kushner's] polychrome sentences...are shot through with all the longing and regret you find in those of Thomas Pynchon, whose influence is all over this novel... a glittering, grave, brutally unsentimental book that's spectacularly written enough to touch greatness."--Craig Seligman "Bloomberg News "

"A white-hot ember of a book..."--David Ulin "The Los Angeles Times "

"Brilliant and exhilarating...Kushner fearlessly tackles art, death, and social unrest. In so doing, she has written the sort of relentless and immersive novel that forces the reader to look up and make sure the room hasn't disappeared around her."--Eugenia Williamson "The Boston Globe "

"Kushner can write like blazes."--Karen Long "The Cleveland Plain Dealer "

"Rachel Kushner so deftly interweaves the story of an Italian industrialist with that of a young woman insinuating herself into the 1970s New York art scene that The Flamethrowers slowly and seductively becomes a novel you just can't quit."--Sherryl Connelly "New York Daily News "

"The Flamethrowers not only harnesses the energies of violent Italian politics; it also converts the intensity of radical New York visual art into shining, whirling prose."--Jimmy So "The Daily Beast "

"I didn't know what it could possibly look like for something to be a super smart sexy novel; now I know. The Flamethrowers is its own category of Wow, and Kushner is the champion of something strange, wonderful and real."--Rivka Galchen, author of Atmospheric Disturbances

“Superb...Scintillatingly alive...A pure explosion of now.”—The New Yorker

Reno, so-called because of the place of her birth, comes to New York intent on turning her fascination with motorcycles and speed into art. Her arrival coincides with an explosion of activity—artists colonize a deserted and industrial SoHo, stage actions in the East Village, blur the line between life and art. Reno is submitted to a sentimental education of sorts—by dreamers, poseurs, and raconteurs in New York and by radicals in Italy, where she goes with her lover to meet his estranged and formidable family. Ardent, vulnerable, and bold, Reno is a fiercely memorable observer, superbly realized by Rachel Kushner.
