NEW YORK (AP) -- Don DeLillo has won the first Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction.

Widely acknowledged as a master chronicler of American dread and secrecy, DeLillo was praised in a statement by the library Thursday for his narratives "into the sociopolitical and moral life" of the United States. DeLillo's novels include "Underworld," ''Libra" and "White Noise."

The 76-year-old DeLillo will be presented with the award in September during the library's annual National Book Festival in Washington, D.C.
