Summary

An epic novel combining fiction and history in a collaboration that encompasses fifty years of American history.

Underworld Summary

Underworld by Don DeLillo

Underworld opens - famously - at the Dodgers-Giants 1951 National League final, where Bobby Thomson hits The Shot Heard Round the World and wins the pennant race for the Giants. But on the other side of the planet, another highly significant shot was fired: the USSR's first atomic detonation. And so begins a masterpiece of gloriously symphonic storytelling.

Don DeLillo loosely follows the fate of the winning baseball as the book swells and rolls through time. He offers a panoramic vision of America, defined by the overarching conflict of the cold war.

This is an awe-inspiring story, seen in deep, clear detail, of men and women, together and apart, as they search for meaning, survival and connection in the toughest of times.

Underworld Reviews

America's greatest living writer. * Observer *
A literary colossus, equal to any (and surpassing most) of the vaulting novels which strive for the immensity of the American mythic. -- Geoff Dyer * Sunday Telegraph *
A rousingly impressive achievement in almost every novelistic department - dialogue, structure, timing, precise description, heartfelt veracity and the rest . . . In Underworld we have a mature and hugely accomplished novelist firing on all cylinders, at the sophisticated height of his multifarious powers. -- William Boyd * Observer *
