Bombshell: A Novel Paperback – July 2, 2013
|New from||Used from|
"Bombshell delivers on every artistic level: visionary story, beautiful language, and an unforgettable, emotionally resilient and iron tough heroine, in this indelibly smart, wild and electrifying powerhouse of a book." - Emily Rapp, The Still Point Of The Turning World
"Bombshell is great stuff, and James Reich writes like a demon. He invokes figures as wonderfully diverse as Valerie Solanas and Nancy Reagan's astrologer as icons in a supremely bizarre, darkly humorous universe. Varyushka Cash is a heroine for the ages." - Mary Dearborn, Mailer: A Biography
"Reich is a formidable writer. He brings his characters and events to life with cinematic clarity. His eye for detail makes even the familiar seem alien. Above all he gives form to the terrifying invisible nuclear air that envelopes us all. Bombshell is a cautionary tale well told, offered up by a passionate and supremely gifted new author." - Malcolm Mc Neill, Observed While Falling: Bill Burroughs, Ah Pook, and Me
"Like Cormac McCarthy wandering a William Burroughs wasteland while blasting a riot grrrl mixtape on a scavenged Walkman!" - S.A. Crary, Kill Your Idols, Director
"Defiant, toothsome, and flaming with color, the voice of James Reich is one of the most exciting to emerge in recent years; he is both something new and something wholly real. If it is possible for a true underground writer to exist anymore, he is that author. Bombshell is sublime." - Stephen E. Andrews, author of 100 Must-Read Science Fiction Novels
Praise for Bombshell
“Reich's novel is chock full of explosive ideas conveyed with radioactive prose. His heroine Varyushka Cash makes Lisbeth Salander look like a dimwitted Mary Poppins. This is dangerous fiction - handle with extreme caution.” —Isaac Adamson, Edgar Award Finalist, Complication
"The feminist heroine is a fresh twist on the thriller genre." —Kirkus

I'm not sure which is more frightening; the idea of a terrorist inducing nuclear power plant meltdowns, or the sheer number of these facilities that exist within the United States and other nations.
Those 5 star reviews above are the product no doubt of the daughters of Lesbos.
No thanks, folks. This is a must read for a very narrow segment of humanity. Being a male lesbian myself, I can't generate the least interest in reading one more word.
Greatly overrated. No wonder Russia is going stridently anti-gay.
The author has thoroughly researched every aspect of his novel and in so doing has delivered a timely reminder to us all. We could so easily stumble blindly into this nightmare scenario.
James Reich is a powerful writer and I would heartily recommend this book.
