RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 40631800 LA English T1 Valparaiso : a play in two acts A1 DeLillo, Don., PB Scribner PP New York, NY YR 1999 SN 0684864215 9780684864211 AB A man sets out on an ordinary business trip to Valparaiso, Indiana. It turns out to be a mock-heroic journey toward identity and transcendence. This is Don DeLillo's second play and it is funny, sharp, and deep-reaching. Its characters tend to have needs and desires shaped by the forces of broadcast technology. This is the way we talk to each other today. This is the way we tell each other things, in public, before listening millions, that we don't dare to say privately. This is also a play that makes obsessive poetry out of the language of routine airline announcements and the flow of endless information.
