Overview

When the New York Times called Ursula K. Le Guin, "America's greatest living science fiction writer," they just might have undersold her legacy. It's hard to look at her vast body of work--novels and stories across multiple genres, poems, translations, essays, speeches, and criticism--and see anything but one of our greatest writers, period.

In a series of interviews with David Naimon (Between the Covers), Le Guin discusses craft, aesthetics, and philosophy in her fiction, poetry, and nonfiction respectively. The discussions provide ample advice and guidance for writers of every level, but also give Le Guin a chance to to sound off on some of her favorite subjects: the genre wars, the patriarchy, the natural world, and what, in her opinion, makes for great writing. With excerpts from her own work and those books that she's looked to for inspiration and guidance, this volume will be a treat for Le Guin's longtime readers and a perfect introduction for those first approaching her writing.
