"It's hard to think of another living author who has written so well for so long in so many styles as Ursula K. Le Guin." --Salon

"She never loses touch with her reverence for the immense what is." --Margaret Atwood

"There is no writer with an imagination as forceful and delicate as Le Guin's." --Grace Paley

Legendary author Ursula K. Le Guin was lauded by millions for her ground- breaking science fiction novels, but she began as a poet, and wrote across genres for her entire career. In this clarifying and sublime collection--completed shortly before her death in 2018--Le Guin is unflinching in the face of mor- tality, and full of wonder for the mysteries beyond. Redolent of the lush natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, with rich sounds playfully echoing myth and nursery rhyme, Le Guin bookends a long, daring, and prolific career.

From "How it Seems to Me":

In the vast abyss before time, self is not, and soul commingles
with mist, and rock, and light. In time, soul brings the misty self to be.
Then slow time hardens self to stone while ever lightening the soul,
till soul can loose its hold of self . . .

Ursula K. Le Guinis the author of over sixty novels, short fiction works, translations, and volumes of poetry, including the acclaimed novelsThe Left Hand of DarknessandThe Dispossessed. Her books continue to sell millions of copies worldwide. Le Guin died in 2018 in her home in Portland, Oregon.
