Der erste, bahnbrechende Roman von Don DeLillo – jetzt neu aufgelegt Mit achtundzwanzig Jahren hat der gut aussehende David Bell bereits Karriere in einer New Yorker Fernsehproduktionsfirma gemacht. Alle Skandale und Intrigen hat er zu seinen Gunsten zu nutzen verstanden. Bell wechselt sowohl Prinzipien als auch die eigene Identität, wie es die jeweilige Situation erfordert, und schützt sich selbst mit seinem ausgeprägten Zynismus. Doch eines Tages wird ihm klar, dass ihm die Wirklichkeit immer weiter entrückt. Der Versuch, sie wieder »einzufangen« – mit einer Kamera in der Hand auf der Reise durch Amerikas Mittleren Westen, auf der Suche nach dem Herzen des Landes –, gerät zu einem Fiasko, das ihn gnadenlos an seine Grenzen führt. Don DeLillos erster Roman, »Americana«, erschien 1971.

Don DeLillo once remarked to an interviewer that his intention is to use "the whole picture, the whole culture," of America. Since the publication of his first novel Americana in 1971, DeLillo has explored modern American culture through a series of acclaimed novels, including White Noise (1985; winner of the American Book Award), Libra (1988), and Underworld (1997). For Mark Osteen, the most bracing and unsettling feature of DeLillo's work is that, although his fiction may satirize cultural forms, it never does so from a privileged position outside the culture. His work brilliantly mimics the argots of the very phenomena it dissects: violent thrillers and conspiracy theories, pop music, advertising, science fiction, film, and television. As a result, DeLillo has been read both as a denouncer and as a defender of contemporary culture; in fact, Osteen argues, neither description is adequate. DeLillo's dialogue with modern institutions, such as chemical companies, the CIA, and the media, respects their power and ingenuity while criticizing their dangerous consequences. Even as DeLillo borrows from their discourses, he maintains a tenaciously opposing stance toward the sources of collective power.

This is an accessible, lucid and incisive study that will prove indispensable to students and scholars of contemporary American fiction. Featuring a wide range of authors - from canonical figures such as Philip Roth, Don DeLillo and Annie Proulx, to increasingly influential writers such as Jeffrey Eugenides, Gish Jen and Richard Powers - the book combines detailed readings of key texts with informative discussions of their historical, social and cultural contexts. There are chapters focusing on formal characteristics (the use of irony and paradox in novels by Don DeLillo, Paul Auster and Bret Easton Ellis, and the generic properties of the texts and films of Cold Mountain, 'Brokeback Mountain' and No Country for Old Men) and on thematic concerns (the representation of gender and sexuality in novels by Jane Smiley, Carol Shields and Jeffrey Eugenides and of ethnicity, race and hybridity in fiction by Gish Jen, Philip Roth and Richard Powers). Running through all these chapters is an interrogation of all three elements making up the phrase 'contemporary American fiction'.Key Features* Identifies some of the main trends in contemporary American fiction and situates them in historical and cultural contexts* Discusses a representative range of recent fiction, providing a sense of the rich diversity of the field and of its key themes and modes of writing* Introduces students to a variety of critical approaches to, and debates concerning, contemporary American fiction* Encourages reflection on the nature of national, gender, ethnic and generic identities

The works of Don DeLillo's give a seismographic account of the cultural political situation and offer complex insights into American culture. Julia Apitzsch examines the thematic and aesthetic function of the visual representation of history and cultural reality in DeLillo's novels. DeLillo's portrayals of key events in American history are violent and traumatic. Their visualisation has burned them into the American collective memory. DeLillo critically examines the mechanisms of power and significance of images and sounds out the various possibilities of creatively reclaiming control through language, by translating the flood of images into literary motifs. Especially traumatic events such as the terrorist attacks of 11th September, which generated an overwhelming torrent of images, show that as an interpreter of images, the author is more important than ever. English and German text.
