Book Discussion: "Underworld" by Don DeLillo
Underworld, by Don DeLillo
In his book, DeLillo offers a stunning document of the twin forces of the Cold War and American culture. The prologue, first published as a novella, is set during the final game of the Giants-Dodgers pennant race in 1951. When Bobby Thomson hits Branca's pitch – the "shot heard around the world" – the events of the next few decades are set in motion, all woven together by the baseball as it passes from hand to hand. (The prologue lasts about 60 pages.) Members are encouraged to read the remaining chapters; however, discussion will cover only the prologue. As a reminder, this is a book discussion; the author will not be present.
