The Body Artist by Don DeLillo
The Body Artist

Tistra doBy, September 11, 2009

I enjoyed this short novel by Don DeLillo. The novel is more like a short story. The writing focuses on the nature of time and the inner workings of one's psyche when dealing with grief and loss. The prose is in turns poetic, starkly realist, fantastical and impressionistic.

Cosmopolis, another Don DeLillo novel that, though short in length and much different from The Body Artist, was masterful and a nice departure for the author. Underworld and White Noise, were excellent, but so are The Body Artist and Cosmopolis in their own way.
