Award winning author

From one of the most dazzling and essential voices in American fiction, a timely and compelling tale set in the near future about five people gathered together in a Manhattan apartment, in the midst of a catastrophic event.

It is Super Bowl Sunday in the year 2022. Five people, dinner, an apartment on the east side of Manhattan. The retired physics professor and her husband and her former student waiting for the couple who will join them for what becomes a dramatic flight from Paris. The conversation ranges from a survey telescope in North-central Chile to a favourite brand of bourbon to Einstein’s 1912 manuscript on the Special Theory of Relativity. Then something happens and the digital connections that have transformed our lives are severed. What follows is a dazzling and profoundly moving conversation about what makes us human. Never has the art of fiction been such an immediate guide to our navigation of a bewildering world. Never have DeLillo’s prescience, imagination, and language been more illuminating and essential.

'Mysterious ... Unexpectedly touching ... [DeLillo offers] consolation simply by enacting so well the mystery and awe of the real world.'
The New York Times Book Review

'DeLillo [has] almost Dayglo powers as a writer.'
The New York Times

'Daring ... provocative ... exquisite ... captures the swelling fears of our age.'
Washington Post
