Reviews

Praise for Ursula K. Le Guin:

"One of the greats.... A literary icon." –Stephen King

"Le Guin is one of the writers who taught me that beauty and fearlessness go hand in hand." –N.K. Jemisin

"Genre cannot contain Ursula Le Guin: she is a genre in herself."–Zadie Smith

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

"Queen of the realm of fantasy."–Washington Post

Eloquent, elegant... insightful, funny, sharp... and nearly always provocative. – The Washington Post

Her worlds are haunting psychological visions molded with firm artistry. – The Library Journal

Her characters are complex and haunting, and her writing is remarkable for its sinewy grace. – Time

"Ursula Le Guin can lift fiction to the level of poetry and compress it to the density of allegory." –Jonathan Lethem

If you want excess and risk and intelligence, try Le Guin. – The San Francisco Chronicle

She wields her pen with a moral and psychological sophistication rarely seen... and while science fiction techniques often buttress her stories they rarely take them over. What she really does is write fables: splendidly intricate and hugely imaginative tales about such mundane concerns as life, death, love, and sex. – Newsweek

Idiosyncratic and convincing, Le Guin's characters have a long afterlife. – Publishers Weekly
