Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Don DeLillo's second novel, a sort of Dr. Strangelove meets North Dallas Forty, solidified his place in the American literary landscape in the early 1970s. The story of an angst-ridden, war-obsessed running back for Logos College in West Texas, End Zone is a heady and hilarious conflation of Cold War existentialism and the parodied parallelism of battlefield/sports rhetoric. When not arguing nuclear endgame strategy with his professor, Major Staley, narrator Gary Harkness joins a brilliant and unlikely bunch of overmuscled gladiators on the field and in the dormitory. In characteristic fashion, DeLillo deliberately undermines the football-is-combat cliché by having one of his characters explain: "I reject the notion of football as warfare. Warfare is warfare. We don't need substitutes because we've got the real thing." What remains is an insightful examination of language in an alien, postmodern world, where a football player's ultimate triumph is his need to play the game.

Review

Praise for End Zone:

"We've got the real thing in Don DeLillo. This is a wondrous work by an inventive talent."
The Philadelphia Inquirer 

"Wonderful . . . [End Zone] makes one wonder whether there are any limits at all to [DeLillo's] potential growth."
The New York Times

"Powerfully funny, oblique, testy, and playful, tearing along in dazzling cinematic spurts . . . A masterful novel." 
The Washington Post

"Taut, witty, and resonant. The dialogue is sweaty and true." 
The Boston Globe

Delivery was good but the cover came damaged even though the box and other items were undamaged. This was meant to be a christmas present but was a waste of money and disappointment
