‘White Noise’ by Don DeLillo

Ciervo Blanco Book Club organizes a book discussion in English about the novel ‘White Noise’ by Don DeLillo

This is a free book discussion in English. The only requirement is to have read the book!

About the novel

White Noise tells the story of Jack Gladney, his fourth wife, Babette, and four ultra­modern offspring as they navigate the rocky passages of family life to the background babble of brand-name consumerism. When an industrial accident unleashes an “airborne toxic event,” a lethal black chemical cloud floats over their lives. The menacing cloud is a more urgent and visible version of the “white noise” engulfing the Gladneys-radio transmissions, sirens, microwaves, ultrasonic appliances, and TV murmurings-pulsing with life, yet suggesting something ominous.

Winner of the 1985 National Book Award.
