White Noise

DeLillo, Don

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF PICADOR BOOKS How strange it is. We have these deep terrible lingering fears about ourselves and the people we love. Yet we walk around, talk to people, eat and drink.

We manage to function. The feelings are deep and real. Shouldn’t they paralyze us? Jack Gladney is the creator and chairman of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill.

This is the story of his absurd life; a life that is going well enough, until a chemical spill from a rail car releases an ’Airborne Toxic Event’ and Jack is forced to confront his biggest fear - his own mortality. White Noise is an effortless combination of social satire and metaphysical dilemma in which Don DeLillo exposes our rampant consumerism, media saturation and novelty intellectualism. It captures the particular strangeness of life lived when the fear of death cannot be denied, repressed or obscured and ponders the role of the family in a time when the very meaning of our existence is under threat.

’America’s greatest living writer.’ - Observer Part of the Picador Collection, a new series showcasing the best of modern literature.
