Foreward by William Gibson In Bellona, dead centre of the US, something has happened. The population has fled; madmen and criminals wander the streets. Strange portents appear in the cloud-covered sky. Into this disaster zone comes a young poet, lover and adventurer, known only as the Kid. Tackling questions of race, gender and sexuality, 'Dhalgren' is a literary marvel, a groundbreaking work of magical realism and one of the most profound and best-selling science fiction novels of all time. A literary landmark.
