Don DeLillo: Age has changed my writing

4th February 2010

Novelist Don DeLillo has said that age has changed his writing - but he is not exactly sure how.

In an interview with the New York Times, the 73-year-old admitted that he is a late bloomer as he only published his debut, Americana, when he was 35.

DeLillo added he has noticed that his more recent works, such as 2007's Falling Man and the forthcoming Point Omega, have differed from his earlier efforts, but he tries not to dwell on it and is wary of talking about how.

He elaborated: 'The last two or three novels are more philosophical, for better or worse, and more interested in the subject of time.'

The author also pointed out that a born writer always feels a sense of 'absolute naturalness' when they are at work, although the exact feeling of this changes as they mature.

DeLillo won the 1985 National Book Award for White Noise, the 1991 PEN/Faulkner Award for Mao II and was the first American recipient of the Jerusalem Prize in 1999.
