A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Winner of the 1985 National Book Award A Penguin Classic from the author of The Silence White Noise tells the story of Jack Gladney, his fourth wife, Babette, and four ultramodern offspring as they navigate the rocky passages of family l ife to the background babble of brand-name consumerism. When an industrial accident unleashes an "airborne toxic event," a lethal black chemical cloud floats over their lives. The menacing cloud is a more urgent and visible v ersion of the "white noise" engulfing the Gladneys-radio transmissions, sir ens, microwaves, ultrasonic appliances, and TV murmurings-pulsing with life , yet suggesting something ominous.
