Don DeLillo

Been reengaging enthusiastically with Don DeLillo obsession of 2005. Those final supremely lyrical pages of Great Jones Street. The unbelievable chunks of astonishing writing *always musical* in Underworld. That killer line, "I'm a sentence maker, like a donut maker, only slower" in Mao II. Soon, when I'm done with Georges Perec's Life: A USer's Manual, will be moving to the unread Don: starting with Cosmopolis. Have left first, Americana and last, Cosmopolis, for dessert.
