Product Description

An apocalyptic novel for our timesThe Silence is a horrifyingly resonant bookSlim and timely

[DeLillo] is our laureate of paranoia and dread . . . [The Silence] is a pristine disaster novel . . . his best writing
here reminds us that, as he puts it . . . ‰ÛÏLife can get so interesting that we forget to be afraid‰۝

DeLillo‰۪s mastery of the fragmented nature of spoken language is displayed in these paranoiac
blurts, which every years seem less paranoiac . . . [a] brilliant, brief tale

DeLillo is a master stylist, and not a word goes to wasteFew people write as gorgeously as DeLillo canThe Silence is DeLillo distilled . . . a straight shot of the good stuffA swift and searing haunting of a novel. An encapsulation of our continuing crisis of aberration and pause. The Silence is prime DeLillo.In this wry and cutting meditation on collective loss, a rupture severs us, suddenly, from everything we‰۪ve come to rely on. The Silence seems to absorb DeLillo‰۪s entire body of work and sand it into stone or crystal.Don DeLillo completed The Silence just weeks before the devastating advent of Covid-19. This timely and compelling novel is the story of a different catastrophic event.

Superbowl Sunday, 2022. A couple wait in their Manhattan apartment for their final dinner guests to arrive. The game is about it start. The missing guests' flight from Paris should have landed by now.
