Without getting too much into Spoilertoria, this basically takes place in a plausible near-future until something is discovered in the outer orbit of our solar system. Something big.
And while much of the treatment of sexuality and social mores will likely seem dated to us writing in the twenty-first century, keep in mind that this was written over three decades ago, and was pushing a lot of boundaries when it first came out. It won a Hugo, after all. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for something outside of the usual, from a surprisingly fresh perspective.
All the truths that were established in the other two novels are blown completely away. Proof again that the reader is always as ignorant as the narrator.
