Some of that won't just be the translation - I've never found Ol' Dusty to be a particularly great writer as far as putting one word in front of the other is concerned. It's that rich stew of plotting, ideas and borderline insane characters that I stayed for.

White Noise would be my favourite Delillo but it was the first I read and I've found him to be very much an author of diminishing returns.

Currently, I've been reading a lot of George Saunders (amazing) and have just started cracking into You Bright And Risen Angels by Vollman. So far so very good but I should probably also get into the the 3rd ASoFaI (did I do it right?) before I am exposed to spoilers for the TV series' third season finale that left everyone so shocked.
