Underworld by Don DeLillo
Underworld is DeLillo’s panoramic vision
of the United States in his time. The novel is obsessed with waste and
garbage, with the bomb and the Cold War, and with the vast areas of the
American imagination which have been filled with images of fear and destruction.
Beside this is presented a relaxed version of ordinary life and the result
is a monument to the power of the novel.
