The Names (Vintage Contemporaries) by Don DeLillo
The Names (Vintage Contemporaries)

stamimi, May 1, 2006

The Names is a lush, powerful novel of haunting beauty. It burns itself into your brain. I've read it at least three times and I find myself going back for more. DeLillo, one of our best writers (see Libra) is so far ahead of the pack that even his apparent failures are gemlike and enduring. While Libra and his more recent work may be more accessible, the imagery and emotions evoked in The Names remain vivid and real.
