I adore DeLillo's writing. I loved the opening of this novel, describing the final moments of a famous baseball game as witnessed by real life people. It kept me guessing how much of the many other interwoven plotlines were also real. I loved the balancing of so many plotlines, maintaining my interest in the baseball, in learning what crime Nick committed, what was the relationship with Klara, what happened to the nameless Bronx girl. It is epic.
