Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand by Samuel R Delany ISBN ISBN Hardcover; New York: Bantam, ; ISBN Just started reading stars in my pocket like grains of sand after seeing it recommended on this subreddit. I’m still in the prologue and wondering if it gets better in the main section. So far, it’s just been a slog, and maybe too dated to hold my interest.

Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand is a science fiction masterpiece, an essay on the inexplicability of sexual attractiveness, and an examination of interstellar politics among far-flung worlds. First published in , the novel's central issues--technology, globalization, gender, sexuality, and multiculturalism--have only become more pressing with the passage of time. Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand is a very difficult book to talk about. It’s a challenging book to read, too, but talking about it seems harder than reading it, to me. That’s usually a sign that there’s something worth thinking over, though I am struggling to find a way into discussing it.

Stars In My Pocket Like Grains Of Sand 作者: Samuel R. Delany 出版社: Wesleyan University Press 出版年: 页数: 定价: USD 装帧: Paperback ISBN: Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand by Samuel R. Delany. From the nomination: This is, IMO, Samuel Delany's masterpiece. The story is mostly a walking tour of a far-future city, with meditations along the way about sex, power, technology, and culture.
