I had greatly enjoyed DeLillo's precious work, Falling Man, but this collection of short stories were rather hit or miss - mostly miss. A great deal of the stories lacked direction and some just seemed pointless. The title story was probably my favorite of the set. Also, I am still highly annoyed by the artificial quality of DeDillo's dialogue although I seem to be the only one with this issue. ( )

A collection of very diverse short stories of experiences on the far outer reach of experience. Left absolutely no impression on me. ( )

strange stories with no real ending ( )

Brilliant prose, stark unforgettable characters and situations. Haunting. ( )

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

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
