Reviewed: THE SILENCE, by Don DeLillo

Sparse and spare - a DeLillo primer: a worthwhile taste - in spite of the off-putting typography which reminded me of a gift book - of a singular body of work (though I still recommend everyone read THE BODY ARTIST or the prologue to UNDERWORLD for the best introduction to DeLillo’s work). Continually amazed by his ability to mine the smallest minutae from the largest moments - an ability profoundly on display here - and, in so doing, reveal a humanity both our own and not. Recommended.
