Don DeLillo, Jean Baudrillard, and the Consumer Conundrum

by Marc Schuster


"A readable, worthy book. Recommended." - CHOICE

“Many critics have identified the affinities between French theorist Jean Baudrillard and American author Don DeLillo; however, this is the first detailed and sustained comparison between DeLillo’s novels and Baudrillard’s works. Instinctive connections are easily, indeed instantly, made between the two, but what this text does is explicitly unpick and develop these connections. This thorough and thoughtful reading of both writers not only acknowledges their affinities but also exhaustively explores the ways in which their writings inform and illuminate each other.” – Dr. Ruth Helyer, University of Teesside (UK)
