This is an auction for UNDERWORLD by Don DeLillo.

From Wikipedia:

"Underworld is a novel published in 1997 by Don DeLillo. It was nominated for the National Book Award, was a best-seller, and is one of DeLillo's better-known novels. Underworld continues to receive general acclaim from literary critics. In 2006, a survey of eminent authors and critics conducted by The New York Times found Underworld the runner-up for the best work of American fiction of the past 25 years; it garnered 11 of 125 votes, finishing behind only Toni Morrison's Beloved with 15 votes. Underworld is a non-linear narrative that has many intertwined themes. A central character is Nick Shay, a waste management executive, who leads an undirected existence in late 20th century America. His wife, Marian, is having an affair with one of his friends. The events of the novel span from the 1950s through the 1990s. The characters in the book respond to several historical events, including the Cuban Missile Crisis and nuclear proliferation. The novel is divided into eight sections:

1.Prologue – The Triumph of Death (3 October 1951)
2.Part 1 – Long Tall Sally (Spring-Summer 1992)
3.Part 2 – Elegy for Left Hand Alone (Mid-1980s – Early 1990s)
4.Part 3 – The Cloud of Unknowing (Spring 1978)
5.Part 4 – Cocksucker Blues (Summer 1974)
6.Part 5 – Better Things for Better Living Through Chemistry (Selected Fragments Public and Private in the 1950s and 1960s)
7.Part 6 – Arrangement in Gray and Black (Fall 1951 – Summer 1952)
8.Epilogue – Das Kapital..."
