About the Author:

Ursula K. Le Guin was born in Berkeley, California, in 1929. Her novels include Rocannon's World, Planet of Exile, City of Illusions, and The Left Hand of Darkness. With the awarding of the 1975 Hugo and Nebula Awards to The Dispossessed, she became the first author to win both awards twice for novels. Le Guin lives in Portland, Oregon.

Review:

“Winner of the Hugo award, it tells an old story in a new way...The plot is originally handled...The characters are well drawn...Ms. Le Guin has written a book well on its way to becoming a classic in its field.” ―The Jackson Tennessee Sun

“A fantasy of the future that might horridly come true; a parable from a skilled writer that speaks to ourselves now.” ―The Oregon Journal

“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
