Spend an afternoon in another world with author Samuel R. Delany, who visits the Walker in conjunction with the exhibition Tetsumi Kudo: Garden of Metamorphosis. Just as Kudo proposed a “new ecology” of humanity and technology, so has Delany’s groundbreaking science fiction—including awardwinning titles such as Babel-17, Dhalgren, and The Einstein Intersection—offered captivating glimpses of hypothetical and shifting realities. In addition to science fiction and fantasy, Delany’s highly acclaimed works include autobiography, literary criticism, and eroticism. His latest novel, Dark Reflections (Running Press), presents a devastating “portrait of the artist” for the 21st century. Copresented by Rain Taxi Review of Books.
