Alison Flood (The Guardian): 'Originally commissioned by US theatre company Steppenwolf in 2007, the play is DeLillo's response to climate change and tells of an Earth where the physical world is disappearing, with only the words describing that world left in their place. The title is drawn from a question asked during the play: "Are you saying children will build a snowman with the word for snow?"
