Reviews

"Delany's most controlled, and therefore his most successful, experiment to date . . . Triton is a novel of manners -;-; those of a rich and complex society in which the avowed highest good is the free expression of each individual's personality."--Gerald Jonas, New York Times Book Review

"This is classic Delany that maintains a cutting edge of sheer platinum. Delany sets his interrogation of the myth and politics of a central culture within an infinitely richer galaxy of interwoven margins. The dazzle always illuminates: the novel offers vision-altering thrills on the order of paradigm shifts or sex at its most rapturously cataclysmic."--Earl Jackson, Jr., author of Fantastic Living: The Speculative Autobiographies of Samuel R. Delany

"An excellent novel. The author has created an innovative and fascinating culture."--Orca

"Delany's most controlled, and therefore his most successful, experiment to date . . . Triton is a novel of manners -- those of a rich and complex society in which the avowed highest good is the free expression of each individual's personality."--Gerald Jonas, New York Times Book Review

"Delany has been the cutting edge of the SF revolution for more than ten years . . . [He] may turn out to be as important a writer as Pynchon."--Mother Jones
