A series of short stories connected slightly thematically, well written and thought provoking. ( )

The story "the angel Esmeralda" is a story that's also part of Underworld. I bought it, but I was disappointed, I had already read it, twice. And like it. But I would have appreciated if someone had told me that it's part of Underworld.

Don DeLillo is one of my favorite novelists, and now he is one of my favorite short story writers, too. These nine stories are to savor, read one at a time and then absorb each for a day or two before reading the next one. ( )

Book description
Avec ces nouvelles écrites entre 1979 et 2011 , Don DeLilli propose une variation aussi magistrale que singulière sur l'intranquilité à l'œuvre chez l'homme contemprain tentant de s 'adapter à travers une paranoïaque recherche de sens , au sentiment d'insécurité qui gouverne sa vie aussi fragile qu'illisible .
Haiku summary
