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