White Noise tells the story of Jack Gladney, his fourth wife, Babette, and four ultramodern offspring as they navigate the rocky passages of family life to the background babble of brand-name consumerism.
Quotes from White Noise
I’ve got death inside me. It’s just a question of whether or not I can outlive it.
The greater the scientific advance, the more primitive the fear.
It is possible to be homesick for a place even when you are there.
That’s why people take vacations. No to relax or find excitement or see new places. To escape the death that exists in routine things.
