Product description

From Mark Z Danielewski, author of the cult best-seller "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 quote

"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"
