Summary
Thrice-married film director Rey Robles informs Lauren, his much younger wife, that he's going for a drive -- and proceeds to travel all the way from the New England coast to the Manhattan apartment of his first wife, where he shoots himself. Now Lauren is left alone...or perhaps not, as she welcomes a stranger into the house -- an eerie, gifted individual she calls "Mr. Tuttle". This odd man, who often speaks in Rey's voice or Lauren's, and who knows both intimate moments of their past life and things that haven't yet happened, seems to defy time and to deepen the mystery of human perception. This is Don DeLillo's stunning exploration of the idiosyncrasies that simultaneously isolate and bind us, as he enters the essential space of human encounter
Summary
Lauren Hartke is an artist whose work defies the limits of the body. She is living on a lonely coast, in a rambling rented house, where she encounters a strange, ageless man who has uncanny knowledge of Lauren's life, and together they begin a journey into the wilderness of time
