National Book Award and PEN/Faulkner Award winner and best-selling author Don DeLillo crafts a magnificent tale laying bare 20th-century American culture as defined by the Cold War. Spanning 50 years, this is a story about human relationships and how they affect one another on global and local scales. Richard Poe's brilliant performance captures the essence of each character through five decades of change.

"Settle in for a long, fascinating journey through the post-war U.S., exquisitely described in 23 tapes, with countless accents and pinpoint literary accuracy by narrator Richard Poe. His reading sets the tone from the opening scene at the Polo Grounds, where Bobby Thompson inaugurates the modern marriage of sports and the media, to the barren landscape of America in the 1990s. Poe's performance is measured, studied, and technically flawless. His deep, authoritative voice covers the prose, and his characters have actual lives. This is a complex book that probably needs a second listening in order for us to fully grasp the nuances of DeLillo's writing. The book's length and detail can be daunting, but we are certainly rewarded at the end. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
