Don DeLillo (in conjunction with the Wallace Literary Agency)
Don DeLillo is the author of seventeen novels, one short story collection and three stage plays. His novels include White Noise, Libra, Underworld and Falling Man, and he has won many honours in the United States and abroad, most recently the National Book Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. In October 2020, his new novel The Silence will be published. The Silence is a story about five people gathered in a Manhattan apartment on Super Bowl Sunday 2022, when an unknown catastrophic event renders the digital world silent. With echoes of the sudden, isolating effects of the Coronavirus, The Silence is a powerful work about what it means to be human from one of the most highly-decorated, dazzling, and essential voices in American fiction.
