About this Item

Bucky Wunderlick is a rock and roll star, in this 1973 novel from National Book Award, Jerusalem Prize, and Irish Times International Fiction Prize winner Don DeLillo. Dissatisfied with a life of fame and fortune, Wunderlick suddenly decides abandon his band mid-tour and hole up in a dingy, unfurnished apartment on Great Jones Street. Unfortunately, his disappearing act only inflames the world's fascination. Full of surreal imagery, DeLillo's third novel includes the invention of his Rolling Stone magazine parody, Running Dog. But this is more than a musical satire; DeLillo probes the rights of the individual, foreshadows the struggle of the artist in the marketplace, and delivers a scathing reflection of our culture's celebrity fixations. "Luminous. Finally, a novel that understands rock and roll!"—Village Voice Literary Supplement 250. Bookseller Inventory # 63774

'Brilliant, deeply shocking' - "New York Review of Books". Bucky Wunderlick is a rock and roll star.

He leaves his band mid-tour and holes up in a dingy, unfurnished apartment in Great Jones Street. Unfortunately, his disappearing act only succeeds in inflaming interest...DeLillo's third novel is more than a musical satire: it probes the rights of the individual, foreshadows the struggle of the artist within a capitalist world and delivers a scathing portrait of our culture's obsession with the lives of the few. 'DeLillo has the force and imagination of Thomas Pynchon or John Barth, with a sense of proportion and style which these would-be giants often lack' - "Irish Times".
