Reviews

"Le Guin writes in quiet, straightforward sentences about people who feel they are being torn apart by massive forces in society-- technological, political, economic--and who fight courageously to remain whole." --The New York Times Book Review

"Like all great writers of fiction, Ursula K. L e Guin creates imaginary worlds that restore us, hearts eased, to our own." --The Boston Globe
