From the paper:
“This is the most important question posed by Don DeLillo?s novel White Noise. But the answer that he gives to this question may not please many of us, for he suggests that it is impossible to speak the truth. Not because human beings are inclined to lie ? although this is certainly true of the characters in his books ? but because there are so many possible truths that the idea of any one truth as having sufficient primacy to be considered The Truth and thus worthy of being given special consideration. As such, given his equal privileging of so many different narrative and ?factual? viewpoints and given his tendency to construct a narrative through various patchwork devices, DeLillo?s work must certainly be considered to be postmodern.
