A novel by

Acclaimed science fiction novelist Samuel Delany wrote Hogg over twenty years ago. Since then it has been one of America's most famous "unpublishable" novels. The subject matter of Hogg is America's culture of sexual violence and degeneration. This theme is not, however, examined from the politically safe perspective of the victim. Rather, Delany explores his disturbing protagonist, Hogg, on his own turf - rape, pederasty, sexual excess. Delany does not adopt an overt moral position, but the book is one of the most moral in recent American fiction. It exposes an area of violence and sexual abuse from the inside. As such, it is a brave book.
