It's a stunningly eventful day in the life of Eric Packer, a multi-billionaire who owns a forty-eight-room apartment and a decommissioned nuclear bomber and who has recently married the heiress of a vast European fortune. Sitting in his stretch limousine as it moves across the middle of Manhattan, he finds the city at a virtual standstill because the President is visiting, a rapper's funeral is proceeding through town, and a violent protest is being staged in Times Square by anti-globalist groups. Eric's bodyguards are worried that he is a target and, indeed, he is -- although the danger, as it turns out, is not from protesters or political assassins but from an anonymous man who lives in an abandoned building. 'One of America's smartest and most disturbing writers' THE TIMES 'DeLillo shapes a rhetoric for our age' OBSERVER

About the Author:

Don DeLillo is the author of two plays and thirteen novels, including UNDERWORLD, WHITE NOISE and, most recently, THE BODY ARTIST . He has won the National Book Award, the Jerusalem Prize and the IRISH TIMES International Fiction Prize.

From AudioFile:

Don DeLillo has avid fans who adore the humor, symbolism, and neo-Gothic fantasy of Underworld and his other novels. In this one, a youngish tycoon enters his custom-made limo to traverse Manhattan for a haircut. The journey takes him an entire day, becoming an odyssey of erotic and satiric adventures, ending with a confrontation with his would-be assassin. Echoes of Joyce, Cheever, and Tom Robbins abound. Will Patton lowers his rugged voice to a near whisper, imbuing the entire exercise with a sinister presentiment of doom. In so doing, much of the humor is sacrificed. The combination of murky text and mumbling reader makes the novel difficult to concentrate on. Y.R. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
