Book Notes: Dhalgren

Dhalgren by Samuel R. Delany
Read Sep 9, 2018

Couldn’t finish this book. Got through about 150 pages and finally gave up. I can see what Delany is trying to do, but the overly-florid language didn’t speak to me. Many of the scenes seem to be meant to be edgy, but feel fairly run-of-the-mill in no longer feel out of the usual to me in 2018 (half-naked men in leathers, gay sex). Perhaps I tried reading this at the wrong time.
