White Noise (Picador 40th Anniversary Edition)

Don DeLillo

First published in 1985, White Noise won the National Book Award. It is now regarded as a classic of postmodern literature.

Jack Gladney is a pioneering professor in the field of Hitler Studies at the bucolic Midwestern College-on-the-Hill. Married five times, he has a brood of children and stepchildren with his current wife, Babette. Over the course of an absurd, tragic year, Jack and Babette will each be forced to confront the question that keeps them awake at night: who will die first?
