Review:

"A mind-expanding trip to the finish line, and full of wit and slapstick as well…" ( Washington Post Book World)

"DeLillo's early-career masterpiece … it's a dense, entertaining, mind-bending boomerang of a book that luxuriates in the language of math and science" ( L A Times)

Book Description:
