Re: Don DeLillo: The Angel Esmeralda
Well, if for no other reason, I'll be reading it because just I'm obliged to consume as much DeLillo as I can for my thesis.
But also (and more sincerely), ever since I got really into his work and started digging-up and sniffing-out DeLillo's occasional essays and stories, I've believed that a collection of such writings would garner him a fresh audience. And with the way Lipsyte, Kakutani, Banville, and Amis, are championing The Angel Esmeralda, it looks like I'll probably be more in the right than the wrong on that one, and for that alone I'm excited to read it.
