"Players," and "The Names" (Oh yeah, and also the Lee Harvey Oswald book, "Libra"). I'll put in a particular plug for "The Names." I think this is DeLillo's best book, and it doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

************ Thanks to you and everybody else who commented on DeLillo. I can't think of anything that I've read set in the Mediterranean. Parts of Tosche's DANTE novel, maybe. Rabe's THE BOX takes place in North Africa. I wasn't overly impressed with either of them, though.
