Point Omega (Paperback)

Don DeLillo

-   16 years +

'"Point Omega" is a treat: the most satisfying and least cryptic of DeLillo's late novels' - "Sunday Telegraph". Richard Elster, a retired secret war adviser, has retreated to a forlorn house in a desert, 'somewhere south of nowhere'. But his planned isolation is interrupted when he is joined by a young filmmaker intent on documenting his experience in a one-take film. The two men sit on the deck, drinking and talking. Weeks go by. And then Elster's daughter Jessie visits. When a devastating event follows, all the men's talk, the accumulated meaning of conversation and isolation, is thrown into question. Written in hypnotic prose, this substantial novel is both a metaphysical meditation and a deeply unsettling mystery, from which one thing emerges: loss, fierce and incomprehensible. 'Another formidable construction by a very distinctive writer' - "Evening Standard". 'A pared, intense anti-parable ...so rigorous and so precise' - "Observer". 'Impossible to forget' - "Sunday Times".
