Zero K by Don DeLillo
Scribner, May 2016. Hardcover | Kindle | 288 pages
Even though I'm request #18 of 35 for this book at my library, I am continuously dying to read this. DeLillo is an extremely talented writer and I have heard wonderful things about his latest release. I hope I can get my hands on this one soon!
Everybody wants to own the end of the world.
This is what my father said, standing by the contoured windows in his New York office - private wealth management, dynasty trusts, emerging markets. We were sharing a rare point in time, contemplative, and the moment was made complete by his vintage sunglasses, bringing the night indoors. I studied the art in the room, variously abstract, and began to understand that the extended silence following his remark belonged to neither one of us. I thought of his wife, the second, the archaeolgist, the one whose mind and failing body would soon begin to drift, on schedule, into the void.
What do you think? Would you keep reading? (And feel free to make your own post!)
