Da Vinci Code-esque puzzle thriller centering around Colombus and a hidden treasure. So far, we have visited Jamaica, Cuba, Vienna and Prague, which is fun. Airplane books are a fun way to pull my head out of the stress.
Beautifully written novel from an inimitable stylist, true to DeLillo's stated aim to give readers "refuge" and a solid way of grasping on to the welter of truth around Lee Harvey Oswald. JFK theories are not my go to, but I've also read Charles McCarry's Tears of Autumn, and what strikes me is how DeLillo's work matches that stated aim whereas McCarry's is both more plausible and more necessarily baroque. Time well spent, at any rate.
