"Sine Cosine Tangent" by Don DeLillo Originally published in the February 22, 2016 issue of The New Yorker. Click here to read the story in its entirety on The New Yorker webpage.
Don DeLillo’s new novel, Zero K., comes out in May. “Sine Cosine Tangent” is an excerpt that, according to the interview with Deborah Treisman (here), “looks at the teen-age son of divorced parents and his struggle to understand his own identity in light of theirs.”
I admire DeLillo more than like him, and I’m not a fan of these novel previews. However, I’m excited to see what’s on offer and what you all think of the segment. Does it make you look forward to the new DeLillo? Or is this enough?
