Description
Published in 1972 in the wake of Americana, this second novel from the 2012 PEN/Faulkner Award–winning author of The Angel Esmeralda is ostensibly about football player Gary Harkness, a student at Logos College in west Texas. During a season of unprecedented success he becomes increasingly fixated on the threat of nuclear war, listening to his teammates discussing game tactics in similar terms to generals contemplating global conflict. But in Don DeLillo's black comedy, terminologies of football and nuclear war—the language of end zones—become interchanged, and the polysemous nature of words emerges, illuminating the human obsession with conflict and confrontation.

"Powerfully funny, oblique, testy, and playful, tearing along in dazzling cinematic spurts.... A masterful novel."—Washington Post
