Author Info
Don DeLillo
DeLillo was raised in the Bronx as a Catholic and was educated by Jesuits. More interested in sports than in literature, he discovered books when he held a boring summer job and had nothing else to do but read. He has a B.A. from Fordham (1958) and worked in advertising after graduation. He published his first short story in 1960. His first novel, AMERICANA, was published in 1971. DeLillo chronicles modern mass culture with an astute eye, and is considered one of the most important late 20th-century novelists.
"Don DeLillo's...ironic, and witty cross-country American nightmare doesn't have a dull or unoriginal line."
From the Publisher
Annotation This novel is in the form of a reminiscence of his youth by a movie maker named David Bell. Beginning in New York, the story of his life takes him out west where he makes a film that is essentially an exploration of who he is and what America is about.
First Line Then we came to the end of another dull and lurid year.
Excerpt The TV set is a package and it's full of products.
