Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Ursula K. Le Guin
 
“[Le Guin] is a splendid short story writer. [Her] fiction, like Borges’s, finds its life in the interstices between the borders of speculative fiction and realism.” —
San Francisco Book Review
 
“The people, places and emotions in Le Guin’s stories are typically strange, but her careful, sudden turns toward the familiar . . . seem like revelations of what’s really important or fascinating about human life.” —Salon.com

Ursula Kroeber Le Guin (US /ˈɜːrsələ ˈkroʊbər ləˈɡwɪn/; born October 21, 1929) is an American author of novels, children's books, and short stories, mainly in the genres of fantasy and science fiction. She has also written poetry and essays. First published in the 1960s, her work has often depicted futuristic or imaginary alternative worlds in politics, the natural environment, gender, religion, sexuality and ethnography.

She influenced such Booker Prize winners and other writers as Salman Rushdie and David Mitchell – and notable science fiction and fantasy writers including Neil Gaiman and Iain Banks. She has won the Hugo Award, Nebula Award, Locus Award, and World Fantasy Award, each more than once. In 2014, she was awarded the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Le Guin has resided in Portland, Oregon since 1959.
