Criticism about Don DeLillo

American Simulacra: Don DeLillo’s Fiction in Light of Some Aspects of Postmodernism
“The characters in Don DeLillo’s novels inhabit a world that is at times cynically hysterical, sometimes loaded with hopes and potential, sometimes with a brooding, brutal darkness that is frightening to us because of the fact that it is so present in our everyday lives. DeLillo’s characters face angst of the most contemporary varieties. Although Don DeLillo is not a conventional realist or naturalist in any sense of the word, I would not rush to say that DeLillo is a postmodernist author. He is not trying, structurally, technically, or otherwise, to jump into any such camp. He is certainly innovative, but he is content to work in forms and genres that are long-established. Yet the work of DeLillo is distinctly post-modern, in that it presents the stories of characters who face life in a post-modern, post-industrial, televisual culture.”
