Fearful Symmetry

by Ann Wilson

The setting for the story is sci-fi (multi-planet empires, interstellar war, etc) but the story itself revolves around interpersonal connection, detachment, and the demands people place on themselves: it is not an adventure story. It carries some of the early-twentieth-century shades of sci-fi as a vehicle to examine the human condition -- rather than much of sci-fi today -- and on that level this story works and is enjoyable, much the say way books such as Alien Dark are.
