The stories in The Angel Esmeralda, collected from all five decades of DeLillo's career, show an acknowledged master of the novel in complete command of the short form. Here, DeLillo finds the freedom to represent the wide range of human experience in contemporary America; and to... challenge it, forcing us to comprehend the uncomfortable shadows lurking beyond our immediate perceptions. By exposing his characters to their own deep and sometimes unconscious longings, or to unexpected acts of terror and violation, DeLillo sparks moments of shocking narrative poignancy. His strong vision of our future and certain comprehension of our past coalesce to form a timeless present that is eerily perceptive and prophetic. No matter whether he is focused upon the slums of New York or astronauts in orbit around the Earth, by electing not to turn away from the unsettling manner in which humans are often brought together, or the disquieting truth behind their emotional interactions, he creates powerful stories of lust and obsession, of loss and remorse, of grief and ecstasy. For those unfamiliar with DeLillo's work, these intense and articulate stories offer a wonderful introduction to one of America's greatest living writers; for those already acquainted, they are a thrilling and significant addition.
