Point Omega

by Don DeLillo

A brief, unnerving, and exceptionally hard-hitting novel about time and loss as only the bestselling and National Book Award-winning author of White Noise and Underworld can tell it.

In this potent and beautiful novel, the Don DeLillo looks into the mind and heart of a scholar who was recruited to help the military conceptualize the war.

We see Richard Elster at the end of his service. He has retreated to the desert, in search of space and geologic time. There he is joined by a filmmaker and by Elster's daughter Jessica--an "otherworldly" woman from New York. The three of them build an odd, tender intimacy, something like a family.

Then a devastating event turns detachment into colossal grief, and it is a human mystery that haunts the landscape of desert and mind.
