Angel Esmeralda

Nine Stories

A finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the Story Prize, the first ever collection of "dazzlingly told" ( The New York Times ) short stories-now available as a trade paperback.
Set in Greece, the Caribbean, Manhattan, a white-collar prison and outer space, this "small masterpiece of short fiction" ( USA Today ) is a mesmerizing introduction to Don DeLillo's iconic voice. In "Creation," a couple at the end of a cruise somewhere in the West Indies can't get off the island-flights canceled, unconfirmed reservations, a dysfunctional economy. In "Human Moments in World War III," two men orbiting the earth, charged with gathering intelligence and reporting to Colorado Command, hear the voices of American radio, from a half century earlier. In the title story, Sisters Edgar and Grace, nuns working the violent streets of the South Bronx, confirm the neighborhood's miracle, the apparition of a dead child, Esmeralda.
Nuns, astronauts, athletes, terrorists and travelers, the characters in The Angel Esmeralda propel themselves into the world and define it. These nine stories describe an extraordinary journey of one great writer whose prescience about world events and ear for American language changed the literary landscape.

In 2010, he was awarded the PEN/Saul Bellow Prize. In October 2012, DeLillo receives the Carl Sandburg Literary Award for his body of work.

Zitat
The typical DeLillo tale reads like a diagnosis of a zeitgeist malady we never knew we had, and in these stories the malady is one of spellbound fixation. DeLillo has achieved a very particular kind of greatness and his gifts are, for a contemporary American writer, unsurpassed. Charles Baxter, "The New York Review of Books"
