9780099915003: Mao II

Bill Gray, a famous, reclusive novelist, emerges from his isolation when he becomes the key figure in an event staged to force the release of a poet hostage in Beirut.

Mao II explores a world in which the novelist's power to influence the inner life of a culture now belongs to bomb-makers and gunmen.

"Disturbing, provocative and darkly comic, Mao II reads, at once, as a sociological meditation on the perils of contemporary society, and as a kind of new-wave thriller" (Michiko Kakutani New York Times)

"A work of fiction not merely astonishingly fitting for our times, but rich and rewarding for anyone wishing to understand them" ( Sunday Times)

"Full of marvels, both in its imagery and its language" ( Irish Times)

"This novel's a beauty. Delillo takes us on a breathtaking journey, beyond the official versions of our daily history, behind all easy assumptions about who we're supposed to be, with a vision as bold and a voice as eloquent and morally focused as any in American writing" (Thomas Pynchon)
