White Noise by Don DeLillo

| /

"White Noise" tells the story of Jack Gladney and his wife Babette who are both afraid of death. Jack is head of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill. His colleague Murray runs a seminar on car crashes. Together they ponder the instances of celebrity death from Elvis to Marilyn to Hitler. Through the brilliant and often very funny dialogue between Jack and Murray, DeLillo exposes our common obsessions with mortality and delineates Jack and Babette's touching relationship and their biggest ear - who will die first?
