Don Delillo

CultureZohn Off the C(H)uff: Dana Spiotta On the Edge

Patricia Zohn | Posted 05.11.2016 | Books
Patricia Zohn

Innocents and Others, Spiotta's new novel delivers in the most personal, least high tech way, comprising notes, lists, screenplay cuts, and reveries. She writes one of the most tender, but most explicit love scenes I've ever read. Along the way there are explorations of the meaning -- and pain -- of devotion to our art or passions, the importance of our senses, how we account for ourselves, our impulses to keep secrets and to confess them.

When I heard that Amazon was doing a miniseries based on Philip K. Dick's Hugo-winning novel from the Sixties, I realized that it had been sitting on my shelves between DeLillo and Didion for years. Once I picked up the 1992 paperback (with a weird cover) and dusted it off, I couldn't put it down.

Movie Review: Cosmopolis

Marshall Fine | Posted 10.13.2012 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

As one would expect from Cronenberg, there are sudden moments of shocking violence to go with the moments of unsexy sex. None of it will distract you from the fact that this limo, like the whole enterprise titled Cosmopolis, is going nowhere.

David Cronenberg and Son Brandon at Cannes (With Don DeLillo)

Karin Badt | Posted 07.30.2012 | Entertainment

David Cronenberg's new film Cosmopolis depicts a world so skewed by capitalism that rats are about to become the unit of currency. The shots are masterful. But what makes the film brilliant is the startling dialogue from Don DeLillo's novel.
