Ad description

April 20. Eric Packer, age 28, wakes up and emerges from his $108 million 48 room apartment on East 47th Street to locate his white stretch limo in a field of them. "His chief of security liked the car for its anonymity, long white limousines had become the most unnoticed vehicles in the city. He was waiting on the sidewalk now, Torval, bald and no-necked, a man whose head seemed removable for maintenance." Packer is the most formidable and most daring of currency traders, and his ride across town–ostensibly to get a haircut–is a journey only the 21st century could understand. His first meeting–in the car–is with his chief of analysis, a man even younger than himself. In his congested travel across town (traffic is caused by a President’s visit, a music idol’s funeral, a demonstration, and more), Eric Packer encounters our speeded up, global world. Sometimes he leaves the car to find the world–his wife of 22 days, his lover of much longer, the female bodyguard he also sleeps with; sometimes the world meets him in the car–his chief of finance, his chief of technology, his chief of theory, the physician whom he sees daily. At age four, Eric figured out what he would weigh on every planet in the solar system. Now he is worth billions. He is also in a willfully self-annihilating bet against the yen that creates "storms of disorder" around the globe. Every one of his advisors advises against it. "’I lost all your money,’ he tells his wife. ‘I lose things all the time. I lost my car this morning. Did we talk about this? I don’t remember.’" There is a credible threat against Eric’s life in the course of the day, and more than one assassination occurs off stage. This is the news we live with. This is our urban and global culture, at its most intimate. In Cosmopolis DeLillo is thinking, breathing, and anticipating our universe as he has since he became the revered and emulated master to a generation of writers.If this novel is heartbreaking as well as intellectually riveting, that is the unique blessing of an older writer who proves, here, that his imagination has never been more vigorous, that he can outthink the next generation, and that he has achieved an emotional wisdom we fathom as we read. I am stunned and elated. DeLillo’s thirteenth novel confirms his role as one of the most profoundly significant writers working in our lifetime–and then some.
