Description

The National Book Award-winning classic from the author of Underworld and Libra--an "eerie, brilliant, and touching" (New York Times) family drama about mass culture and the numbing effects of technology--now a major motion picture starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig

White Noise
tells the story of Jack Gladney, his fourth wife, Babette, and four ultra­modern offspring as they navigate the rocky passages of family life to the background babble of brand-name consumerism. When an industrial accident unleashes an "airborne toxic event," a lethal black chemical cloud floats over their lives. The menacing cloud is a more urgent and visible version of the "white noise" engulfing the Gladneys--radio transmissions, sirens, microwaves, ultrasonic appliances, and TV murmurings--pulsing with life, yet heralding something ominous.
