The Motion of LIght in Water.  Sex and Science Fiction Writing in the East Village.  by Samuel R. Delany.
2004, Paperback

In 1961, Samuel R. Delany and his wife, white poet Marilyn Hacker, moved to New York's Lower East Side.  New art, sexual practices, music, and political awareness burgeoned among the crowded streets and apartments.  Beautifully, vividly, insightfully, Delany calls up this era of exploration as he details his development as a black gay writer in an open marriage, with walk-ons by Bob Dylan, Stokely Carmichael, W.H. Auden and James Baldwin.

Winner of the 1989 Hugo Award for Nonfiction.
