In The Angel Esmeralda, DeLillo finds the freedom to represent the wide range of human experience in contemporary America – and forces us to confront the uncomfortable shadows lurking in the background.

His characters are exposed to their own deep, often unconscious, longings: one man exploits the vulnerability of a woman he’s just met, following her home to her apartment and pushing her too far; another finds himself deceiving his wife and beginning an affair.

For those unfamiliar with his work, this intense and articulate collection offers a wonderful introduction to one of America’s greatest living writers. For those already acquainted, it will be a thrilling and significant addition.
