This was a book worth reading. I liked how the author explains DeLillo's novels and it surely helped me understand DeLillo better. It is not too long (which is a good thing). You get ideas on the general themes of each novel and this is helpful ( for/before) reading the novels. I am saddened that some parts are spoiled for a couple of novels, but that's ok. I expected it

Good, compact overview of DeLillo's work. A good job at a daunting task, difficult work, and a large volume of it. Argues successfully overarching themes across multiple works within a time frame, and a 3 phase model to categorize these themes. Also, an evolutionary leap forward from phase to phase. Help's fans of DeLillo (are there anyone else?) get a handle on the work.
