Don DeLillo: Cosmopolis

Hosted by  • 

In Cosmopolis (Scribner's), the deadpan master of post-modern dysfunction-comedy takes an ordinary New York traffic jam and transforms it into a funeral procession that guides his protagonist to defeat and death. This vibrant conversation, the first of a two-part interview, covers central Don DeLillo themes: genius, autism, and myths of our culture. (listen to Part II here)
