About the Author:

Don Delillo is the author of thirteen novels and two plays. He has won the National Book Award, the PEN/ Faulkner Award for Fiction and the Jerusalem 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
