Point Omega by Don DeLillo is one of the most anticipated books according to the Globe & Mail. National Post agrees. PW says “It’s hardly a new experience to emerge from a Don DeLillo novel feeling faintly disturbed and disoriented. This is both a charm and a curse of much of his fiction, a reason he is so exciting to some readers and so irritating to others (notably George Will). And in the 117-page Point Omega, DeLillo’s lean prose is so spare and concentrated that the aftereffects are more powerful than usual”.
And more praise here:
“An icy, disturbing and masterfully composed study of guilt, loss and regret — quite possibly the author’s finest yet.” Kirkus Reviews
“Though it be but brief, DeLillo’s latest offering is fierce. An excellent nugget of thought-provoking fiction that pits life against art and emotion against intellect.” Library Journal
“[T]his slim novel is rich with ideas about objectivity and complicity, and time and transformation. Its subject is a satisfying next step from DeLillo’s 9/11-themed Falling Man” Booklist
Out February 2nd – watch for it.
