Description

Nick Shay and Klara Sax knew each other once, intimately, and they meet again in the American desert. He is trying to outdistance the crucial events of his early life; she is an artist who has made a blood struggle for independence.

"Underworld" is a story of men and women together and apart, seen in deep, clear detail and in stadium-sized panoramas, shadowed throughout by the overarching conflict of the Cold War. It is a novel that accepts every challenge of these extraordinary times -- Don DeLillo's greatest and most powerful work of fiction.

Reviews

Underworld is a "dazzling and prescient novel...A decade after 9/11, it's worth rereading Don DeLillo's 1997 masterpiece to appreciate how uncannily the author not only captured the surreal weirdness of life in the second half of the 20th century but also anticipated America's lurch into the terror and exigencies of the new millennium...A breathtaking set piece...the prologue is a bravura display of Mr. DeLillo's literary powers."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
