From Rachel Kushner, the bestselling author of Telex from Cuba, comes an extraordinarily ambitious new novel about a young artist and the worlds she encounters in New York and Rome in the mid-1970s — by turns underground, elite, dangerous. The Flamethrowers ($26.00) is a fearless story — an intensely engaging exploration of the mystique of the feminine, the fake, the terrorist. In the center of it all is Kushner’s brilliantly realized protagonist, a young woman on the verge.Rachel Kushner’s debut novel, Telex from Cuba, was a finalist for the 2008 National Book Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, winner of the California Book Award, and a New York Times bestseller and Notable Book. Her fiction and essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Believer, Artforum, Bookforum, Fence, Bomb, Cabinet, and Grand Street. She lives in Los Angeles.
