Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Sam:
They were with us before Romeo & Juliet. And long after too. Because they’re forever around. Or so both claim, carolling gleefully:
We’re allways sixteen.
Sam & Hailey, powered by an ever-rotating fleet of cars, from Model T to Lincoln Continental, career from the Civil War to the Cold War, barrelling down through the Appalachians, up the Mississippi River, across the Badlands, finally cutting a nation in half as they try to outrace History itself.
By turns beguiling and gripping, finally worldwrecking, Only Revolutions is unlike anything ever published before, a remarkable feat of heart and intellect, moving us with the journey of two kids, perpetually of summer, perpetually sixteen, who give up everything except each other.

Hailey:
They were with us before Tristan & Isolde. And long after too. Because they’re forever around. Or so both claim, gleefully carolling:
We’re allways sixteen.
Hailey & Sam, powered by an ever-rotating fleet of cars, from Shelby Mustang to Sumover Linx, careen from the Civil Rights Movement to the Iraq War, tearing down to New Orleans, up the Mississippi River, across Montana, finally cutting a nation in half as they try to outrace History itself.
By turns enticing and exhilarating, finally breathtaking, Only Revolutions is unlike anything ever conceived before, a remarkable feat of heart and intellect, moving us with the journey of two kids, perpetually of summer, perpetually sixteen, who give up everything except each other.

Review:
"

Praise for House of Leaves:

'A great novel. A phenomenal debut. Thrillingly alive, sublimely creepy, distressingly scary, breathtakingly intelligent.'

"

"Superbly inventive . . . a rare debut: genuinely exciting."

"The fictional equivalent of an earthqauke zone"

"Remarkable . . . a debut of scintillating intelligence and scope"

"Genre-defying . . . at once a genuinely scary chiller, a satire on the business of criticism and a mdeitation on the way we read"

Review

Review:
`Danielewski's formidable literary intelligence . . . has here
composed a startling and versatile pair of voices, and a manner of
storytelling which is at once hallucinatory, vague and slyly punning, and
also possessed finally of an authentically tragic register . . . Once
you're attuned to its extraordinary music, there is no way out except
through the end.'
Guardian

'Dazzling prose . . . a step on from his first book . . . Danielewski's
beautiful, Joycean jabberwocky becomes all the more compelling the further
into each end you delve.'
New Statesman

`Danielewski certainly has a way with words. When he soars, he can be
breathtaking, and there are passages that are positively Joycean.'
Sean O'Hagan, Observer
