Of see where he s coming from Because I too am a
man of today and perhaps I share some of the insecurities and of today and perhaps I share some of the insecurities and of this asshole Frightening But that s why this book is so ood As a reader I had to ask myself would I have been happy in this utopia Would I be okay with anyone being able and encouraged to be absolutely whatever they want to be Isn t that a bit childish This is particularly topical in today s world isn t it what with people all being encouraged to embrace their true selves whatever that may be We applaud every person who comes out of whatever dark closet they had hidden their true identities The only person today evidently who has any right to say just who and what you are is YOU This is a very new phenomenon and I know a lot of people have an instinctive and visceral reaction against it So could I enjoy a world just like that a world without stability of identity without structure and limitations and labels Or would I also be a miserable curmudgeon just like this uy The novel invites self introspection and that is a rare feat And to anyone who fears they won t enjoy the novel because they won t sympathize with the narrator protagonist just know that you aren t meant to sympathize with him He s an unreliable narrator and if you were to sympathize with him you would misunderstand the themes and purpose of the novel Feel free to hate him It s what Delany intended Even as I saw where his discomforts came from I hated him He was a joy to hate This novel is about how even in a utopia some people just couldn t be happy and that #S Why I Say The #why I say the is so splendidly psychological It s about how stuck we et in our own patterns how resistant to change we are how obtuse we can be about other people s feelings about how we rationalize damaging other people It doesn t deliver any pat answers this isn t Dr Phil But it
Does Present To Mypresent to my an extremely convincing portrait of the kind of human being who is all too common today even perhaps in parts of ourselves as social and cultural barriers to happiness start falling away one by oneRead it as a psychological examination of the character s misery and attitudes and inability to adapt to a world without boundaries and I believe you will Shotgun Wedding (Silhouette Yours Truly, get areat deal out of it Strongly recommended.

That s really an illusion It s a beautifully written complex but totally accessible and engaging workThe main character Bron Helstrom is simultaneously likeable and infuriating perceptive and unaware an authentic personality on the page The background events of his life in an ambiguous heteropotia include a devastating war between the inner worlds and the outer satellites that is presented slightly obliuely and very convincingly And the society in which Bron has chosen to make his home is constructed with brilliant imagination and attention to detail It s a sort of utopia of choice not uite the perfect society but hugely preferrable to our ownDelany is a thought provoking writer but there is a lot of positive emotional energy in his work too Triton is the best novel I have read all year Without uestion Everyone talks about how this is a political or cultural or social exploration novel and that s all true but what fascinates me about it is how incredibly PSYCHOLOGICAL it is The cultural and social stuff is pretty simple Samuel Delany has created here an honest to oodness utopia a world in which everyone can essentially be anyone they want to be You re a woman who wants to be a male homosexual No problem There s a community for you You want to have scales and a tail
