Summary

'A witty, harrowing and superbly controlled novel about modern alienation and violence' Washington Post

Players Summary

Players by Don DeLillo

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: their talk is mostly chatter, their sex life more a matter of obligatory 'satisfaction' than pleasure. And still they remain untouched, 'players' indifferent to the violence that surrounds them, and that they have helped to create.

Originally published in 1977, Players is a fast-moving yet starkly drawn socially critical drama that demonstrates the razor-sharp prose and thematic density for which Don DeLillo is renowned today.
