From Mark Z Danielewski, author of the cult bestseller House of Leaves, comes the astonishing Only Revolutions, a shoot-from-the-hip American road novel about Sam and Hailey - two wayward and wild kids who magically career across the American mainland and from the Civil Rights Movement to the Iraq War and beyond.

Powered by an ever-evolving fleet of cars, these two teenagers never age and never stop. They crash parties in New Orleans, barrel up the Mississippi, and blast through the Badlands, cutting a nation in half as they try to outrace History itself.

And where this journey takes them is what sets the pages, even the actual book, turning. Alternating between Hailey and Sam, this kaleidoscopic novel spins the strangest, most gripping and lyrical love story published in more than a generation.

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"

From the Publisher:

`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
