BOOK OF THE WEEK: WEEK THIRTY-SEVEN, 2011
Don DeLillo, Underworld (New York: Scribner, 1997) (See Michiko Katutani, "A Presceint Novel Retains Its Power," NYT, Friday, July 15, 2011, at C25: "A Decade after 9/11, it's worth rereading Don DeLillo's 1997 masterpiece, 'Underworld," 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 terror and exigencies of the new millennium."
