Players by Don Delillo

InPlayersDeLillo explores the dark side of contemporary affluence and its discontents. Pammy and Lyle Wynant are an attractive, modern couple who seem to have it all. Yet behind their ideal life is a lingering boredom and quiet desperation: their talk is mostly chatter, their sex life more a matter of obligatory satisfaction than pleasure. Then Lyle sees a man killed on the floor of the Stock Exchange and becomes involved with the terrorists responsible; Pammy leaves for Maine with a homosexual couple.... And still they remain untouched, players indifferent to the violence that surrounds them, and that they have helped to create. Originally published in 1977 (before his National Book Award-winningWhite Noiseand the recent blockbusterUnderworld),Playersis a fast-moving yet starkly drawn socially critical drama that demonstrates the razor-sharp prose and thematic density for which DeLillo is renown today. The wit, elegance and economy of Don DeLillos art are equal to the bitter clarity of his perceptions.--New York Times Book Review
