LOVE-LIES-BLEEDING focuses on the last years of a free-spirited artist, now left invalid after a second stroke. His estranged son, wife and ex-wife struggle over the ultimate question: How do they let him die with dignity? As DeLillo masterfully tackles the ethics of their decision, he amplifies what it truly means to be alive.
"An articulate exploration…several poignant ironies become intertwined with the life-ending debate at hand." —Variety. "Hauntingly beautiful…DeLillo is a wordsmith whose language sings with such seemingly effortless beauty and truth." —Chicago Tribune. "DeLillo gives us a weave of meditative monologues and scenes…an exquisite piece of writing, splendidly rendered…compelling." —Chicago Sun-Times. "Merciless, meticulous writing…The language traps anguish in frozen, formal diction…chock-full of resonant metaphors and poignant exchanges." —Chicago Reader. "LOVE-LIES-BLEEDING [is] an austere consideration of how enlightened humankind tries to assert primacy over forces beyond its control…profound." —Washington Post. "Boasting laconic yet liquid dialogue, DeLillo asks a stirring, unanswerable question without tarnishing it with sentimentality." —Orlando Weekly.
