What People are Saying About This

Earl Jackson

“This is classic Delany that maintains a cutting edge of sheer platinum. Delany sets his interrogation of the myth and politics of a central culture within an infinitely richer galaxy of interwoven margins. The dazzle always illuminates: the novel offers vision-altering thrills on the order of paradigm shifts or sex at its most rapturously cataclysmic.”

Absolutely one of the worst novels I have ever tried to read. Steve & I both gave up. A shame considering Dhalgren was so amazing. I'm going to read more Delany later, but not this particular title unless someone can tell me what I am missing.
