"This is a beautifully coherent collection of essays on DeLillo's three most important recent novels. It is also much more than that. The volume reflects on, tells us much about, and revises views of, DeLillo's entire oeuvre, American literature and culture broadly, modernist and postmodernist theory, and the other arts (including photography, performance art, film). Anyone with any interest in contemporary culture should know this book. Led by the level-setting eloquent and erudite Olster, the contributors comprise the most exciting scholars in American literary and cultural studies today. Fittingly for a volume on DeLillo, reading it you will never forget that these are people who can write."--Sanford Lakoff
