en Limba Engleză Paperback – 14 Dec 2010
In this potent and beautiful novel, the writer "The New York Times "calls "prophetic about twenty-first-century America" looks into the mind and heart of a scholar who was recruited to help the mili-tary conceptualize the war.
We see Richard Elster at the end of his service. He has retreated to the desert, in search of space and geologic time. There he is joined by a filmmaker and by Elster's daughter Jessica--an "otherworldly" woman from New York. The three of them build an odd, tender intimacy, something like a family. Then a devastating event turns detachment into colossal grief, and it is a human mys-tery that haunts the landscape of desert and mind.

“A splendid, fierce novel by a deep practitioner of the form…. Enlivening, challenging, harrowing and beautiful.”—Matthew Sharpe, "Los Angeles Times"
"If "Underworld" was DeLillo’s extravagant funeral for the twentieth century, "Point Omega" is the farewell party for the last decade.... DeLillo has …. written the first important novel of the year."--Michael Miller, "New York Observer"
“A novel of ideas — about how language, film and art alter what we think of as reality. It's for readers ready to slow down and savor the words. It's for those who would watch not just "Psycho", but ponder the meanings of ‘24 Hour Psycho’.”—Bob Minzesheimer, "USA Today"
“DeLillo has achieved a precision and economy of language here that any writer would envy.”—David Ignatius, "Washington Post Book World"
“Haunting… DeLillo slows down the whole culture, all of our repertoire of artifacts, words, and gestures.”—Greil Marcus
“DeLillo is, without any doubt or qualification, one of the most influential, brilliant, gifted and insightful of American novelists. There are sentences in this book that are breathtaking.”—Geoff Pevere, "Toronto Star"
