Don DeLillo

DeLillo in New York City, 2011 Donald Richard DeLillo (born November 20, 1936) is an American novelist, short story writer, playwright, screenwriter and essayist. His works have covered subjects as diverse as television, nuclear war, sports, the complexities of language, performance art, the Cold War, mathematics, the advent of the digital age, politics, economics, and global terrorism.

Initially he was a well-regarded cult writer; however, the publication in 1985 of ''White Noise'' brought him widespread recognition, and won him the National Book Award for fiction. It was followed in 1988 by ''Libra'', a bestseller. DeLillo has twice been a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction finalist (for ''Mao II'' in 1992 and for ''Underworld'' in 1998), won the PEN/Faulkner Award for ''Mao II'' in 1992 (receiving a further PEN/Faulkner Award nomination for ''The Angel Esmeralda'' in 2012), was granted the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction in 2010, and won the Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction in 2013.

DeLillo has described his fiction as being concerned with "living in dangerous times", and in a 2005 interview declared, "Writers must oppose systems. It's important to write against power, corporations, the state, and the whole system of consumption and of debilitating entertainments [...] I think writers, by nature, must oppose things, oppose whatever power tries to impose on us."
