The Jerusalem Prize For The Freedom Of The Individual In Society. "A History of the Writer Alone in a Room"
Caspit Press 1999 - 22 cm. 24 pp. Tan wrappers, stapled. Fine. The program for the Jerusalem Prize, June 1999. DeLillo's acceptance address, "A History of the Writer Alone in a Room", appears on pages 13-18. Also included are an address by Scribner editor-in-chief Nan Graham, the Jury's Citation, and an address by Jerusalem mayor Ehud Olmert. The text was reprinted in a German translation in Die Zeit in 2001 and by DeLillo's French publisher Actes Sud in their 2000-2001 catalogue under the title "L'Ecrivain seul dans sa chambre." The essay addresses many of DeLillo's preoccupations and concerns as a writer and a novelist. OCLC lists only two copies (Yale and National Library of Isreal), and there are copies in the writers archive at the Ransom Center. A rare 'A' DeLillo item in Fine condition.
