Mao II Pdf
Mao II, published in 1991, is Don DeLillo’s tenth novel. It was the winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award in 1992. The title is derived from a series of Andy Warhol silkscreen prints depicting Mao Zedong. The book was dedicated to DeLillo’s editor, Gordon Lish. The last sentence of the prologue reveals an important and major theme in Mao II: “The future belongs to crowds.” Crowds feature heavily in the book, from the opening crowds of thousands at the mass wedding at Yankee Stadium, to the crowds living in Tompkins Square Park, to the thousands of mourners at the Ayatollah’s funeral as observed on television by Karen. The nature of crowds and their relation to personal and collective identity are explored.
Mao II Summary
A reclusive novelist named Bill Gray works endlessly on a novel which he chooses to not finish. He has chosen a lifestyle secluded from the outside world in order to try to keep his writing pure. He, along with his assistant Scott, believes that something is lost once a mass audience reads the work. Scott would prefer Bill didn’t publish the book for fear that the mass-production of the work will destroy the “real” Bill. Bill has a dalliance with Scott’s partner Karen Janney, a former member of the Unification Church who is married to Kim Jo Pak in a Unification Church Blessing ceremony in the prologue of the book.
