Editorial Reviews

Review

"In her introduction to this volume, Le Guin states that the good interview is a conversation between people who have thought about what they’re talking about. That’s a perfect description of this thoughtful collection . . . 'What I really like to do,' Le Guin states, 'is talk shop.' Readers are privileged to listen while she does."
Booklist

"Candid and perceptive last words by a treasured writer."
Kirkus

"An enlightening conversation about the writing process. Both authors adopt the tone of artisans discussing their craft, and each’s delight at debating with a like-minded professional is evident throughout. . . [Le Guin's] expansive knowledge of the SF genre provides, most strikingly, a sharp perspective on how its female practitioners have too often been forgotten in favor of their male contemporaries. Her rapport with Naimon results in an exchange that is both informative and charming."
Publishers Weekly

"Fueled by Naimon's incisive questions and peppered with excerpts from Le Guin's books, these wide-ranging interviews are a treat for both longtime fans and newcomers to her work."
Shelf Awareness

"In this small, beautifully crafted book, the conversations range from style to point of view to genre to why we should use 'they' as singular. . . . Together, Le Guin and Naimon demonstrate engagement at its finest."
World Literature Today

"For nuggets of fiery wisdom and plunges into literary form and purpose from the late, great Ursula K. Le Guin, look to Tin House’s newly published Conversations on Writing."
Portland Monthly
