Editorial reviews (5 reviews)


Instructions for a Heatwave is never dull, never unconvincing, proceeding at a stately and crisp speed through a fully rendered world, grappling at all times and in an original way with the fascinating problems of our time, rushing head-long — and yet staggering almost drunkenly when necessary — towards a stirring and wondrous conclusion.

“Instructions for a Heatwave” dutifully draws the reader through the keeping, and then the disclosure, of what has been concealed, but the novel’s pleasure and urgency lie in the indelibly familiar.

O’Farrell smartly avoids a tidy wrap-up, but I can tell you that each Riordan changes believably. She also gives insight into what damage can be done to families without some rational honesty, with or without a natural disaster.
