The Parthenon & Pollution :: Don DeLillo on Fiction
It's rare that Don DeLillo would appear in public to read or give a lecture. For many years he refused to do either. Now in his old, or older, age he has been coming out of his shell to appear in public. This is a particularly interesting gem I recently found on a page to promote his newest book Point Omega (Scribner 2010). It's an excerpt from a lecture he gave on language and the art of fiction.
