“Before pop art, there was such a thing as bad taste. Now there’s kitsch, schlock, camp, and porn.”
― from Running Dog, by Don DeLillo
Don DeLillo, an essayist, novelist, playwright, and short story writer, has described his fiction as being influenced by “the fact that we’re living in dangerous times. If I could put it in a sentence, in fact, my work is about just that: living in dangerous times.” DeLillo was born today in 1936.
