Appreciating Don Delillo; the moral force of a writer's work.
This book is written for readers who would like to know more about the work of American novelist Don Delillo but who may be intimidated by the vast amount of literary criticism written about him. Giaimo claims that DeLillo's body of work does not fit neatly into either the modern or post-modern categories so often assigned to it. He examines the themes in DeLillo's novels and shows how they evolve from a more post-modern to a more modern, or neorealist sensibility. Giaimo is particularly interested in the moral force of DeLillo's work, as well as the Catholic Italian-American cultural background from which it springs. (©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
