'A stunning, audacious new thriller... It will shock you, horrify you, unsettle you, and that's exactly the point. As brave as it is brutal, it lets nothing and nobody off the hook' NPR 'A book that everyone should be reading right now' TIME New Yorkers Carter and Seth chop up old music to make it new again, ripping off black culture to line white pockets. They are young, hungry and talented. But one day they stumble on an old blues song - an undiscovered gem just waiting to be found - and land themselves in a heap of trouble. Seeking answers, Seth travels deep into the heart of the old South, accompanied by Carter's bewitching sister Leonie. But this is America, where ghosts lie uneasy in shallow graves and tugging one loose thread can unravel a bloody history of injustice. And the closer Seth gets to the haunting truth, the more he feels pursued . . . White Tears is a nail-biting ride through the terrifying spectre of America's past. It's about black lives and white privilege and the music that runs through the country's veins like blood.

Marvellous, original and intelligent. Kunzru writes like a master storyteller... There's simply nothing [he] couldn't manage in prose * Literary Review * Kunzru's engagingly wired prose and agile plotting sweep all before them * New Yorker * Hari Kunzru is one of our most important novelists * Independent on Sunday * Hari Kunzru is an incredibly versatile writer who is alert to the inequalities in the world... Powerful and complex, White Tears is a novel about abuses of wealth and power. Brilliantly orchestrated, unforgettable and devastating -- Bernardine Evaristo Riveting from the very first page, I was completely addicted... A literary thriller and a timely, unsparing excavation of the very real spectre of race in America's past and present. White Tears is proof that Kunzru is one of the finest novelists of his generation... -- Mirza Waheed Compulsively readable, masterly - a tour de force -- Rachel Kushner Publisher's description. Electrifying, subversive and wildly original, White Tears is a ghost story and a love story, a story about lost innocence and historical guilt. This unmissable novel penetrates the heart of a nation's darkness, encountering a suppressed history of greed, envy, revenge and exploitation, and holding a mirror up to the true nature of America today. * Penguin * A fast-paced, ambitious, hallucinatory mystery * Publishers Weekly * Full of verve and rhythm, White Tears cleverly skewers ideas about angst surrounding white appropriation of black music * Financial Times * This rich novel embraces the Deep South, a murder and a wealthy family's dark secret, while riffing on art and authenticity * Mail on Sunday * A nightmarish page-turner... A disorientating odyssey through American history and a lesson in what happens when art is hijacked for less than noble aims * Daily Telegraph * [An] excellent ghost story... A mesmerising tale of white guilt and black oppression in America * Evening Standard * A brave book and often very funny * Sunday Telegraph * Deep themes on the nature of memory, race and authenticity * The Times * A witty, strange and often very moving book * Financial Times * Kunzru's awareness and discernment have particular value in an America of the moment where nothing less than the country's meaning is at stake... unmoored between the heart that's felt it and the tip of the tongue that awaits the heart's transmission, in search of a promise that's determined to keep itself * The New York Times * Both like a radical revenge fantasia and a stern lesson in radical empathy * Spectator * A captivating satire about race and music * The Week, Novel of the Week * What begins as dude-bro send-up soon spirals into a supernatural revenge fantasy keyed to America's history of racism * Observer * Think of it as a socially-aware Goosebumps book for grown-ups * Shortlist * At its heart is a serious reminder of how too often history robs the powerless of their voices * Daily Mail * Exquisite... captures a yearning achieved fleetingly in life and more fully in art * i * Graceful [and] exquisitely attuned * Washington Post * Visceral horror, pacey storytelling and razor tautness. White Tears is a state-of-the-nation novel that ties pre-Civil Rights barbarism with a contemporary amnesia that parades as post racial America * Evening Standard * A disorientating odyssey through decades of American history...Kunzru has always been an assured and intellectually gifted novelist, but I am not sure he has ever before displaying such emotional heft * Daily Telegraph * Like Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch... A stunning novel of ideas that becomes a page-turning thriller... During Trump's presidency, reading White Tears feels like a necessary and exhilarating act * Stylist * Haunting, doom-drenched, genuinely and viscerally disturbing... Kunzru showcases his trademark exhilarating prose throughout - closing with a conclusion that packs a real punch * Independent * Delilloesque -- moody, threatening, and profoundly dark... A
