Don DeLillo archive goes to U. of Texas

The University of Texas has acquired the archive of acclaimed American novelist Don DeLillo.

The papers of DeLillo, author of 13 novels and three plays, include some 120 boxes of notes, drafts and typescripts for his work, in addition to articles, correspondence and unpublished material dating from 1959 to 2003, officials said from the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center.

DeLillo's first novel, Americana, was published in 1971. He also wrote the critically acclaimed White Noise (1985), Libra (1988) and Underworld (1997).

DeLillo has been honored with a National Book Award, a PEN/Faulkner Award and other awards. The archive is available to researchers and the public.

The Ransom Center is scheduled to host a public lecture with DeLillo in February.
