NEW YORK — Don DeLillo could have one thing to say this fall about concern and isolation.
The 83-year-old creator identified for imagining catastrophe in “White Noise,” “End Zone” and different works has a novel coming in October that takes place in 2022 amid a digital shutdown in New York City. The guide known as “The Silence,” Scribner introduced Wednesday.
“I began writing the novel in 2018, long before the current pandemic,” DeLillo stated in an announcement. “I started with a vision of empty streets in Manhattan. The idea of the silence grew from sentence to sentence, from one chapter to the next.”
DeLillo’s different books embody “Libra,” “Underworld” and “The Names.” His many honours embody a National Book Award and the Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction.
