Don DeLillo : Contemporary Critical Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Katherine Da Cunha (University of Sussex, UK) Lewin, Kiron (University of East Anglia, UK) Ward
Part of the Contemporary Critical Perspectives series
Don DeLillo is widely regarded as one of the most significant, and prescient, writers of our time.
Since the 1960s, DeLillo's fiction has been at the cutting edge of thought on American identity, globalization, technology, environmental destruction, and terrorism, always with a distinctively macabre and humorous eye. Don DeLillo: Contemporary Critical Perspectives brings together leading scholars of the contemporary American novel to guide readers through DeLillo's oeuvre, from his early short stories through to 2016's Zero K, including his theatrical work.
As well as critically exploring DeLillo's engagement with key contemporary themes, the book also includes a new interview with the author, annotated guides to further reading, and a chronology of his life and work.
