Don De Lillo: “The Silence” in four (and a half) words

Initially, I had thought to devote the first paragraph to a brief retrospective of Don DeLillo, the “shaman” who in his books predicted the fragility of the Twin Towers, the Italian-American kid who parked cars in the Bronx as a job, the author who still writes with the same typewriter. But, despite having essentially just done so, I prefer to go straight talking you about “The Silence”.
