National Bestseller

National Book Award Finalist

âA masterpiece . . . one of the great road novels . . . exhilarating . . . a literary experience unlike anything else.â âThe Washington Post Book World
âHailey and Sam . . . friends, lovers, restless comrades . . . as various as Huck and Jim, Bonnie and Clyde, Vladimir and Estragon . . . and one shared âdreamâ . . . And anyone can see that the âdreamâ at stake is America.â

â The New York Times Book Review

âProvocative, mischievous and thoroughly dazzling . . . In staking out the line between poem and prose, [Danielewski] treats our traditional lexis like so much Silly Putty. He smashes, pushes, copies, tears and juggles words in combinations unanticipated and inspired, providing so much pace and beauty to the story that the book screams to be read aloud.â

âSan Francisco Chronicle

âA startling and versatile pair of voices, and a manner of storytelling which is at once hallucinatory . . . slyly punning, and also possessed finally of an authentically tragic register. . . . Once you are attuned to its extraordinary music, there is no way out except through the end.â

âThe Guardian

âItâs difficult to decide whether Danielewski is merely reinventing the novel as a medium, or has constructed his own, entirely original platform from which to destroy literary convention.â

âThe New York Press

âEngaging. . . . Reads like a love story slipped into a particle accelerator.â

âTime Out New York

âPoetic. . . . Elegant. . . . The more the novelâs structure is decoded, the more lyrical and poignant it becomes. . . . Ambitious, undeniably astonishing and contemporary.â


âIn his new novel, the author of House of Leaves is up to his old tricksâmulticolored and upside-down textâand some flabbergasting new ones.â

âThe New Yorker

âItâs difficult to decide whether Danielewski is merely reinventing the novel as a medium, or has constructed his own, entirely original platform from which to destroy literary convention.â

âThe New York Press

âMark Z. Danielewskiâs Only Revolutions raises the level of American literature to a new height of experimentation. As complex as the novel appears, it is based essentially on the simple, romantic stories of two young lovers, Hailey and Sam, as they cross the continent in jalopies. Their love is fated by the lives they are trying to escape from, and more, fated by historyânot only American history, but world history, so overwhelmingly the history of those who âgo,â who die in train wrecks, in earthquakes, in wars. This innovative novel combines the rhythm and swing of rap with the high lyricism of the beauty of nature. In the way stories of two young fated lovers do, Only Revolutions instills in the reader that indefinable longing and love for what is beyond history. It dares the grand emotions.â

â National Book Award Finalist Judgesâ Citation

âTurning readers upside-down . . . [Only Revolutions] is the road novel as if imagined by John Cage. . . . A true revolutionâit wants to overthrow not just how we read, but what we read.â


âExceptional . . . a poetic jazz riff on 200 years of U.S. history . . . combines the best of Kerouac, e. e. cummings, and Joyce . . . heavy with wordplay and heady with love. . . . A crib sheet to the universality of teen angst.â

âMinneapolis Star Tribune

âHeartbreaking . . . [a] celebration . . . and chronicle of America . . . adrenaline pulses through the book.â

âDenver Post

âRewarding . . . a palindrome of a book . . . appears destined to become a classic.â

âThe Oregonian

âSweeping ambition and fierce intelligence. . . . A quintessential novel of our time.â

âLos Angeles Times

Mark Z Danielewski is also the author of House of Leaves. He was born in New York City and now lives in Los Angeles.
