Don DeLillo

Don DeLillo grew up in an American-Italian family in the Bronx in New York and obtained a bachelor's degree in communication arts at Fordham University. During a summer job as a parking attendant, DeLillo developed a huge appetite for reading and has subsequently talked about the major influence that modernist fiction – especially Joyce, Faulkner and Hemingway – as well as jazz music, European post-war cinema and American directors such as Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese, have had on his writing.

Biography

DeLillo’s first novel, Americana, came out in 1971 and follows a man on a frantic journey through the United States, trying to capture something of the soul of the nation through the lens of his camera. Much of DeLillo’s subsequent fiction, including Libra (1988) – a speculative fictionalised life of John F Kennedy’s assassin – have been pre-occupied with questions of American culture, power relationships and the contribution of individual lives to the course of history. It was DeLillo’s eighth novel, White Noise (1985), which truly raised him into literary stardom. Exploring the themes of death, consumer culture, the masses and intellectual responsibility, White Noise earned him the National Book Award and has been adapted for screen by Noah Baumbach (2022). DeLillo has won several other awards for his fiction – including for his novels Mao II (1991) and Underworld (1997) and is widely considered as one of the most important American writers working today.
