The Tides of Lust was later reprinted under Samuel R. Delany's preferred title Equinox (1994).
The Tides of Lust is a
powerful, erotic and violent encounter with the voices and experiences
of characters who linger in a small American seaport. Here is an
insatiable African-American ship's captain, a dangerously young slave
mistress, an aimless drifter and a supreme artist of the perverse.
Written by acclaimed and award-winning author Samuel R. Delany, The Tides of Lust, first published in 1973, is a wild ride along the oceans of unleashed sexuality at its most exuberant. A true modern classic.
