But there’s a problem: DeLillo hasn’t been very good recently. As if in reaction to the bunker-busting Underworld, DeLillo’s 21st century work grew famished, starved of style and meaning. Thin works like The Body Artist, Cosmopolis and The Falling Man looked more like stocking stuffers than proper novels, and they read worse.
Have you read Cosmopolis, and if so, did you read it before Rob Pattinson was cast in the film or after?
What was your take on the novel?
