SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 NATIONAL BOOK AWARDS Reno mounts her motorcycle and sets collision course for New York. In 1977 the city is alive with art, sensuality and danger. She falls in with a bohemian clique colonising the East Village 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 inevitably 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.
