Summer reading: Dhalgren

Book cover for Dhalgren
Samuel R. Delany

A young man, “the Kid,” walks into the perpetually burning city of Bellona somewhere in middle America in the not so distant future–or is it the past, or an alternative present? An epic, oneiric tale that explores race, sexuality, gender, and class, written by the one of science fiction’s most famous authors.
