Read a review about White Noise in the Los Angeles Times

Winner of the National Book Award, White Noise tells the story of Jack Gladney, his fourth wife, Babette, and four ultra­modern offspring as they navigate the rocky passages of family life to the background babble of brand-name consumerism. When an industrial accident unleashes an "airborne toxic event," a lethal black chemical cloud floats over their lives. The menacing cloud is a more urgent and visible version of the "white noise" engulfing the Gladneys-radio transmissions, sirens, microwaves, ultrasonic appliances, and TV murmurings-pulsing with life, yet suggesting something ominous.

Synopsis:

From a National Book Award-winning author comes this postmodern masterpiece. After a deadly toxic accident and his wife's addiction to an experimental drug, a man is forced to question everything about his life.

Erica Williams, March 4, 2010 (view all comments by Erica Williams)
How did I manage to go this long without reading this book? Of course, I had seen it on the shelf at the bookstore countless times, but I had resisted it based on the opinions of others who had read it and weren't quite ready for the dynamite impact it delivers. I just finished reading it and I am resisting the urge to start over again, relishing not only the story, but the sentences! Who thinks like this? Fortunately, Don DeLillo does.
