Don DeLillo dreamed up his soon-to-be-released novel well before the coronavirus pandemic hit, but it turns out to be perfectly relevant to current events.

The Silence, which comes out October 20, takes place on Super Bowl Sunday in 2022, “when an unknown catastrophic event renders the digital world silent,” according to its publisher, Scribner.

Among DeLillo’s many other celebrated novels are White Noise and End Zone, which both include themes of isolation; he has also previously won the National Book Award and the Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction.
