Synopsis

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, 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.'

In the media

In his most ­funereal novel, DeLillo describes a wealthy man determined to save his dying wife by keeping her frozen in cryonic suspension for millennia. The trademark DeLillo themes are coolly updated for the Internet age
Washington Post
The novel I liked best was Don DeLillo's Zero K for its sombre tones, its perfect cadences and its rich storyline
Irish Independent
DeLillo's 16th novel takes a sanguine and, as usual, perceptive look at life as it is now, beset by wars, terrorism and the catastrophic results of climate change, and balances them against the beauty and joy that can be involved in being human
