About this title

Synopsis:

The American Shore: Meditations on a Tale of Science Fiction by Thomas M. Disch??Angouleme? was first published in 1978 to the intense interest of science fiction readers and the growing community of SF scholars. Recalling Nabokov?s commentary on Pushkin?s Eugene Onegin, Roland Barthes? commentary on Balzac?s Sarazine, and Grabinier?s reading of The Heart of Hamlet, this book-length essay helped prove the genre worthy of serious investigation. The American Shore is the third in a series of influential critical works by Samuel R. Delany, beginning with The Jewel-Hinged Jaw and Starboard Wine, first published in the late seventies and reissued over the last five years by Wesleyan University Press, which helped win Delany a Pilgrim Award for Science Fiction Scholarship from the Science Fiction Research Association of America. This edition includes the author?s corrected text as well as a new introduction by Delany scholar Matthew Cheney.
