THE SUN HAS GROWN DEADLY…
The world has gone mad, society has perished, savagery rules over all. All that was known is over, all that was familiar is strange and terrible. Today and yesterday collide with tomorrow. In these dying days of Earth, a young drifter enters the city…

Winner of the all-time award for Flap Copy That Is Entirely Accurate But Nonetheless Manages to Totally Misrepresent the Story Contained Within—and I say that in a tone of absolute admiration. That some fortunate soul might be tricked by those words into reading this novel is a beautiful thing.
Editor Frederik Pohl writes about how Dhalgren came to be here and here. If you haven’t read it and you enjoy art that is the product of genius (whether you like science fiction or not is largely irrelevant), I strongly endorse picking up a copy.
