In Dhalgren, perhaps one of the most profound and bestselling science fiction novels of all time, Samuel R. Delany has produced a novel that rivals the best American fiction of the 1970s.

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—a poet, lover, and adventurer—known only as the Kid.

Tackling questions of race, gender, and sexuality, Dhalgren is a literary marvel and a groundbreaking work of American magical realism.

    Best narration for one of the most complex novels of all times

    Saneshka February 15, 2016
    I'm glad that my first exposure to this strange and scary novel was in form of Stefan Rudnicki's deliberate soulful reading. This is how Delany - after Babel-17 and this book - will forever sound in my head, and I'm grateful for this. This is one of the best ways possible to get to know this novel.
