The Edinburgh Companion to Don DeLillo and the Arts is the first book to provide a comprehensive study of Don DeLillo's career-long engagements with the visual, literary, digital and televisual, performing, filmic, and spatial arts. Gathering original essays from a diverse range of international contributors, including established voices in DeLillo criticism and emerging experts, the volume forges new paths in the study of one of the greatest authors of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Beginning with a section dedicated to experiential and political aesthetics in DeLillo's work, the Companion offers new perspectives on the forms and functions of the arts across DeLillo's entire oeuvre--from his first novel Americana, through his plays, essays, short stories, to his latest novel, The Silence. This exciting Companion is a genuine intervention in DeLillo scholarship by offering an interdisciplinary examination of his work across forms, media, method, and theory.
