Praise

Praise for Libra:

Finalist for the National Book Award for Fiction 

“[DeLillo’s] richest novel . . . It’s in commonplace moments that [he] reveals his genius . . . a triumph.” 
—Anne Tyler, The New York Times 

“Much of DeLillo’s earlier fiction now seems a brilliant prelude to [this novel] . . . Libra displays his genius for creative paranoia: he fills the gaps in the record with his imagination, spinning a brilliant web out of a heap of improbable coincidences.” 
London Review of Books 

“[Libra] is like a stop-motion frame of the crossfire, a still picture of an awful moment . . . DeLillo’s prose has a quality of demented lyricism.”
The New Yorker

“Extraordinary intensity . . . unforgiving thoroughness . . . DeLillo has created a thriller of the most profound sort . . . Libra is electrifying, a book alive with suggestion.”
Chicago Tribune

Libra operates at a dizzyingly high level of intensity throughout; it’s that true fictional rarity—a novel of admirable depth and relevance that’s also a terrific page-turner.”
USA Today
