Focusing on the beliefs and fears of the anti-globalization movement, this novel follows the last day in the life of a paranoid billionaire who may be a target of rioting New Yorkers. Instead his nemesis comes in the form of a disgruntled ex-employee who wants to make his sad life worth something.

Don DeLillo is the author of two plays and thirteen novels, including Underworld, White Noise and, most recently, The Body Artist. He has won the National Book Award, the Jerusalem Prize and the Irish Times International Fiction Prize.From AudioFile:
Don DeLillo has avid fans who adore the humor, symbolism, and neo-Gothic fantasy of Underworld and his other novels. In this one, a youngish tycoon enters his custom-made limo to traverse Manhattan for a haircut. The journey takes him an entire day, becoming an odyssey of erotic and satiric adventures, ending with a confrontation with his would-be assassin. Echoes of Joyce, Cheever, and Tom Robbins abound. Will Patton lowers his rugged voice to a near whisper, imbuing the entire exercise with a sinister presentiment of doom. In so doing, much of the humor is sacrificed. The combination of murky text and mumbling reader makes the novel difficult to concentrate on. Y.R. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
