Review: Bread and Wine

User Review  - Edward Rathke - Goodreads

Though quite short, this is a beautiful book with awesome imagery. Probably mostly for people who are just really into Delany, but I'd still recommend it to anyone in need of a nice lovestory. Read full review

Review: Bread and Wine

User Review  - Buck Doyle - Goodreads

I probably give too many 5-star reviews amirite? BUT I took a break from my speed-read of Delany's epic novel Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders to read this, which came to the door yesterday. Short, beautiful. Actual physical object available for lending! Read full review

About the author (1999)

Samuel R. Delany Jr., celebrated science fiction and short story writer, was born in Harlem, N.Y., in 1942 to Samuel Ray and Margaret Carey. Delany suffered from dyslexia, which was not diagnosed until he attended the prestigious Bronx High School of Science, where he also met his future wife and where he began publishing short stories that won high school literary awards. Delany's first novel, The Jewels of Aptor, was published in 1962. It established the direction his later works would take by exploring the ways in which myth shapes our cultural beliefs. Delany also examines topics such as alternative love and sex relationships, mythic elements in the imagination, issues of communications and community, and the role of the artist in society. Delany has written more than 20 novels and collections of short stories, memoirs, and critical essays. His many awards include the Nebula Award for Best Novel for Babel-17 in 1966 and The Einstein Intersection in 1967, the Hugo Award for best short story, Science Fiction Convention, for "Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-Precious Stones" in 1970, and the Bill Whitehead Award for Lifetime Achievement in Gay Literature in 1993.
