The Einstein Intersection is a 1967 science fiction novel by Samuel R. Delany. It won the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1967[1] and was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1968.[2] Delany's intended title for the book was A Fabulous, Formless Darkness.

The novel is purportedly influenced by Marcel Camus' 1959 film Black Orpheus. The protagonist, Lo Lobey, is loosely based on the character of Orpheus, and the character of Kid Death is likewise based on Death in that film. 136 pages

I agree Phil! It's really an interesting read. I'm happy I read it though since it's one of the big classic sci-fi books. I might read Babel-17 at some point in the future.
