Don DeLillo's White Noise is definitely on my "Top Ten Books I've Read that I Actually Enjoyed" list. There's something about his tone throughout the novel that would make me laugh, feel like I got punched in the gut, and then he'd suddenly drop little bombs of thoughtfulness on top of me when I was least expecting it.
why and how you want the things that you want
I know I want certain things and I know what I like but sometimes I don't know how "it" got there. It makes me feel like everything I've been do is a fraudulent to some extent.
I can tell myself that I'm not a fraud in my feelings because I've examined and explored the things I enjoy and found what makes them so appealing or so beautiful to me.
