In a story as exciting as any science fiction adventure written Samuel R Delany s 1976 SF novel originally published as Triton takes us on a tour of a utopian society at war with our own Earth High wit in this future comedy of manners allows Delany to question gender roles and sexual expectations at a level that 20 years after it was written still make it a coruscating portrait of the happily reasonable man Bron Helstrom an immigrant to the embattled world of Triton whose troubles become more and more complex till there is nothing left for him to do but become a woman Against a background of high adventure this minuet of a novel dances from the farthest limits of the solar system to Earth s own Outer Mongolia Alternately funny and moving it is a wide ranging tale in which character after character turns out not to be what he or she seems
