About This Item

New York: The Viking Press. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good. Advance uncorrected proof of the first edition. Publisher's white printed string-bound wraps, less common in this format than in the advance reading copy. Very Good or better, with light edge wear and light soiling to wraps. A nice copy of this uncommon format.


Don DeLillo is an American author, playwright, and essayist. His novel, White Noise won the National Book Award in 1985. The book is essentially about America’s fear of death, but touches upon almost every essence of modern culture as well. It tells the life story of Jack Gladney, a professor of Hitler studies at a small college. He and his wife have four children from previous marriages and live with an excessive amount of fear, especially of their own demise. Jack's fear of technology turns out to be justified when a toxic chemical cloud is released in the area and he is terminally poisoned. The book is an unforgettable experience and an adventurous exploration into American culture.
