One of the most intelligent grimly funny voices to comment on life in present day America i The New York Times i Don DeLillo presents an extraordinary new novel about words and images novelists and terrorists the mass mind and the arch individualist At the heart of the book is Bill Gray a famous reclusive writer who escapes the failed novel he has been working on for many years and enters the world of political violence a nightscape of Semtex explosives and hostages locked in basement rooms Bill s dangerous passage leaves two people stranded his brilliant fixated assistant Scott and the strange young woman who is Scott s lover and Bill s, While Eisenstein documented the forces of totalitarianism and Stalinism upon the faces of the Russian peoples DeLillo offers a stunning at times overwhelming document of the twin forces of the Cold War and American culture compelling that swerve from evenness in which he finds events and people both wondrous and horrifying br br i Underworld i opens with a breathlessly graceful prologue set during the final game of the Giants Dodgers pennant race in Written in what DeLillo calls super omniscience the sentences sweep from young Cotter Martin as he jumps the gate to the press box soars over the radio waves runs out to the diamond slides in on a fast ball pops into the stands where J Edgar Hoover is sitting with a drunken Jackie Gleason and a splenetic Frank Sinatra and learns of the Soviet Union s second detonation of a nuclear bomb It s an absolutely thrilling literary moment When Bobby Thomson hits Branca s pitch into the outstretched hand of Cotter the shot heard around the world and Jackie Gleason pukes on Sinatra s shoes the events of the next few decades are set in motion all threaded together by the baseball as it passes from hand to hand br br It s all falling indelibly into the past writes DeLillo a past that he carefully recalls and reconstructs with acute grace Jump from Giants Stadium to the Nevada desert in where Nick Shay who now owns the baseball reunites with the artist Kara Sax They had been brief and unlikely lovers years before and it is largely through the events spinoffs and coincidental encounters of their pasts that DeLillo filters the Cold War experience He believes that global events may alter how we live in the smallest ways and as the book steps back in time to over the following odd pages we see just how those events alter lives This reverse narrative allows the author to strip away the detritus of history and pop culture until we get to the story s pure elements the bomb the baseball and the Bronx In an epilogue as breathless and stunning as the prologue DeLillo fast forwards to a near future in which ruthless capitalism the Internet and a new hushed faith have replaced the Cold War s blend of dread and euphoria br br Through fragments and interlaced stories including those of highway killers artists celebrities conspiracists gangsters nuns and sundry others DeLillo creates a fragile web of connected experience a communal Zeitgeist that encompasses the messy whole of five decades of American life wonderfully distilled, The Barnes amp Noble Review br In whatever form Don DeLillo chooses to write there is simply no other American author who has so consistently pushed the boundaries of fiction in his effort to capture the zeitgeist In i The Body Artist i DeLillo tells the hallucinatory tale of performance artist Lauren Hartke in the days following the suicide of her husband filmmaker Rey Robles Finishing out their lease of a rented house on the coast living in a self imposed exile Lauren discovers a mysterious man in the bedroom upstairs who is able to repeat verbatim entire conversations she had with her husband before his death but does not seem to know his own name or where he came from p br DeLillo s emphasis on behavior and the inadequacies of language in i The Body Artist i will remind readers more of his plays a href http cart barnesandnoble com

few pages as compared to the sweeping masterful a href http cart barnesandnoble com booksearch isbninquiry asp isbn rel nofollow i Underworld i a s plus DeLillo still manages to draw a rich portrait of contemporary American life in all its quotidian glory Describing Lauren in the kitchen on the morning her husband will commit suicide he writes She took the kettle back to the stove because this is how you live a life even if you don t know it In this opening scene Lauren and Rey silently struggle to assign meaning and relevance to an ordinary moment They have a routine they know what comes next But they can t say what it is They seem cut off from their own actions How do you articulate the emotion that accompanies eating breakfast with your spouse As Rey puts it I want to say something but what When they finish eating Rey drives to his ex wife s apartment in Manhattan to kill himself p p br br The question remains open as to whether or not the strange man whom Lauren affectionately names Mr Tuttle after an English teacher of hers when she finds him upstairs exists at all or if he is merely a figment of her imagination But Mr Tuttle s origins are entirely beside the point He has no origins He defies description He is neither old nor young Maybe this man experiences another kind of reality where he is here and there before and after And leave it to DeLillo to connect this enigma to the Internet There is a live hour web site Lauren enjoys viewing It shows an empty road in Kotka Finland Occasionally a car drives by or a person crosses the screen but generally nothing happens Lauren is fascinated by the notion that across the globe at this very moment i this i is happening an episode real enough to withstand the circumstance of nothing going on This may also be the best way to describe i The Body Artist i a book in which it all happens around the word i seem i p p br br In DeLillo s unique brand of lucid albeit elliptical prose i The Body Artist i addresses the very questions Gauguin inscribed on his famous painting Who am I Where do I come from Where am I going Lauren Hartke answers these questions by transforming the absurdities of her daily life that hours can seem long or short and still be hours how a thing can look like something other than itself into a beautiful suggestive live performance Through her art Lauren transcends the limits of language and body approaching an understanding of her husband s death and more clearly discerning her own original nature And in a brilliant act of spiritual ventriloquism DeLillo the poet of lonely places dresses himself up in this character placing us in the extreme situation of her search for an experience of meaning she can call living p, It is a stunningly eventful day in the life of Eric Packer a multi billionaire who has recently married the heiress of a vast European fortune A violent protest is being staged by anti globalist groups and Eric fears that he may be a target He is the target but not by the protestors
