Americana Summary

Americana by Don DeLillo

David Bell embodies the American dream. He's twenty-eight, has survived office coups, scandals, and beaten lesser rivals, to become an extremely successful TV exec. The images that flicker across America's screens, the fantasies that enthrall viewers, they are of his making.

But David's dream is turning sour, nightmarish. He wants reality, to touch, feel and record what is real. He takes a camera and journeys across America in a mad, roving quest to discover and capture some sense of his own and his country's past, present and future.

Americana is Don DeLillo's brilliant first novel.

Americana Reviews

A writer who, once you read him, makes you want to read everything he has done -- Martin Amis * Sunday Times *
DeLillo's swift, ironic, and witty cross-country nightmare doesn't have a dull or unoriginal line * Rolling Stone *
Nearly every sentence rings true. DeLillo is a man of frightening perception -- Joyce Carol Oates
Witty, clever and incisive. Marvellously realised * Time Out *
