Sci-Fi Book Discussion: Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand, by Samuel Delany

Rat Korga is a man who submits to voluntary slavery on his homeworld, and the only survivor of a cataclysm that has destroyed his planet. Marq Dyeth, an interstellar diplomat, has been paired with Korga under mysterious circumstances, knowing nothing more than that Korga has been calculated as his “ideal erotic object.” Published in 1984 and considered a sci-fi masterpiece, Stars in My Pocket is prescient in its anticipation of the ways in which technology, globalization, gender, sexuality, and multiculturalism affect 21st century society.
