I got this softcover from a local Savers thrift shop, taking advantage of discount-for-seniors day, and was pleased to have another release copy.

While I didn't love it as much as I did Dhalgren, it had lots of intriguing, sometimes disturbing aspects, including concepts of slavery, informed consent, global cataclysms, and One True Love that may actually be more manipulative than expected. Great world-building details, often quite surreal, sometimes sweetly home-like...

[There's a TV Tropes page on Delany and some of his work.]
