InDhalgren,perhaps one of the most profound and bestselling science fiction novels of all time, Samuel R. Delany has produced a novel "to stand with the best American fiction of the 1970s" (Jonathan Lethem). Bellona is a city at the dead center of the United States. Something has happened there…. The population has fled. Madmen and criminals wander the streets. Strange portents appear in the cloud-covered sky. And into this disaster zone comes a young man--poet, lover, and adventurer--known only as the Kid. Tackling questions of race, gender, and sexuality,Dhalgrenis a literary marvel and groundbreaking work of American magical realism.
