• Rachel Kushner’s debut novel is an absolute blinder... Like the sea which surrounds Cuba, Telex From Cuba is ever-shifting, and it is luminous

    The Times
  • If you relish glittering language that pursues emotional and political truth, you'll be enthralled by Telex from Cuba... the atmosphere seethes and crackles... [a] lush, intoxicating book

  • Telex from Cuba is epic and enjoyable: the style is lush and precise; the parties and cookouts, the drinks and affairs are beautiful and poignant, full of the pleasures of wealth overshadowed by loss.

    Anne Enright, Guardian
  • Fascinating and vividly detailed... You can almost feel the heat radiating from the page: the air is mosquito-thick and tainted with a nickel oxide haze, the tropical landscape a character in its own right

  • A piece of fiction quite breathtaking in its assurance […] a beautifully weighted treatise on colonial attitudes, capitalism, racism and the interactions and divisions between cultures and classes

    Billy O'Callaghan, Irish Examiner
  • A lush, meticulous, cinematic debut novel

  • Kushner evokes a dreamlike paradise... A poignant tale

    Antonia Charlesworth, Big Issue
  • [Kushner's] cleverly counterposed registers and nuanced explanation of the way we make and remake ourselves elevates her book beyond the standard historical romp

    David Annand, Sunday Telegraph
  • Detail-packed prose

    Glasgow Herald
  • Deeply evocative... A fascinating and vividly detailed portrait of the country
