don delillo’s underworld

don delillo: underworld “… she said to a man, what do mean really want from women, and he said, blowjobs, and she said, you can get that from a man.” p. 397
“they sat in their cubicles and stared at memos pinned to the corkboard, wondering why they’d sold out if this is how it felt to be a sellout.” p.527
its sentences like these that make the book a worthwhile read.
meanwhile i can’t seem to decide, if the fucked up narration is delillo trying to be clever or if it is in fact clever.
