Jeffrey Lockhart has been summoned to The Convergence: a remote and secret compound where death is exquisitely, cryogenically controlled.
He is there to say goodbye to his stepmother, Artis, who has chosen to surrender her dying body; preserving it until a future time when biomedical advances and new technologies can return her to a life of transcendent promise.
And his healthy father, Ross, might join her.
Hypnotic and seductive, Don DeLillo’s Zero K is a visionary novel about the legacies we leave, the nobility of death, and the ultimate worth of ‘the mingled astonishments of our time, here, on earth.’
