Review:

"Rachel Kushner’s debut novel is an absolute blinder... Like the sea which surrounds Cuba, Telex From Cuba is ever-shifting, and it is luminous" ( The Times)

"If you relish glittering language that pursues emotional and political truth, you'll be enthralled by Telex from Cuba... the atmosphere seethes and crackles... [a] lush, intoxicating book" ( Independent)

" Telex from Cuba is epic and enjoyable: the style is lush and precise; the parties and cookouts, the drinks and affairs are beautiful and poignant, full of the pleasures of wealth overshadowed by loss." (Anne Enright Guardian)

" Fascinating and vividly detailed... You can almost feel the heat radiating from the page: the air is mosquito-thick and tainted with a nickel oxide haze, the tropical landscape a character in its own right" ( Observer)

" A piece of fiction quite breathtaking in its assurance […] a beautifully weighted treatise on colonial attitudes, capitalism, racism and the interactions and divisions between cultures and classes" (Billy O'Callaghan Irish Examiner)

"A lush, meticulous, cinematic debut novel" ( Elle)

" Kushner evokes a dreamlike paradise... A poignant tale" (Antonia Charlesworth Big Issue)

"[Kushner's] cleverly counterposed registers and nuanced explanation of the way we make and remake ourselves elevates her book beyond the standard historical romp" (David Annand Sunday Telegraph)

"Detail-packed prose" ( Glasgow Herald)

"Deeply evocative... A fascinating and vividly detailed portrait of the country" (Natasha Tripney Observer)

"An intriguing, multifaceted portrait of a society in flux" (David Evans Independent on Sunday)

"Massively compelling… Tough yet tender writing that throbs with history, nostalgia and love" ( Bath Chronicle)

"It begs for a big-screen adaptation" ( London Magazine)

"Telex from Cuba is a wonderful debut and essential reading for those who wish to follow the career of one of the best new writers of our generation" (Stephen Joyce Nudge)

"[Telex From Cuba] proves that this American author is a superstar of the future" (Nick Barley Herald)
