In this remarkable novel of menace and mystery Pammy and Lyle Wynant are an attractive, modern couple who seem to have it all. Yet behind their "ideal" life is a lingering boredom and quiet desperation which leads both of them into separate but equally fatal adventures. And still they remain untouched, "players" indifferent to the violence that surrounds them, and that they have helped to create.

"Don DeLillo...is original, versatile, and, in his disdain of last year's emotional guarantees, fastidious.... Into our technology-ridden daily lives he reads the sinister ambiguities, the floating ugliness of America's recent history" (John Updike New Yorker)
"A witty, harrowing and superbly controlled novel about modern alienation and violence" ( Washington Post)
