Rachel Kushner's The Flamethrowers (Scribner) is a novel with multiple voices, motorcycles, and swift zigzags between separate times and places. Kushner talks about her interest in exploring the relation (or lack thereof) between the New York art world and the Italian revolutionary underground of the 1970's, and what draws her to the boundless artifice of storytelling.
