44 Down, 8 To Go - "The Angel Esmeralda: Nine Stories" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

The most amazing thing about Don DeLillo's new short story collection The Angel Esmeralda is its consistency. These nine stories, written over 30+ years, are all rich with imagery and spot-on dialogue. Even the oldest stories have a contemporary feel, this may be my favorite short story collection of the year so far. DeLillo has produced yet another literary wonder.

My next book is Joan Didion's memoir Blue Nights.
