Gender Studies Book Club – The Flame Throwers by Rachel Kushner    



October 3 Noon-1pm 339 O’Shaughnessy


The Flamethrowers is an intensely engaging exploration of the mystique of the feminine, the fake, the terrorist. At its center is Kushner’s brilliantly realized protagonist, a young woman on the verge. Thrilling and fearless, this is a major American novel from a writer of spectacular talent and imagination.
