"Ursula K. Le Guin's beautifully written short stories... lovely, haunting, infinite. She's an enchantress." —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"Le Guin writes with painstaking intelligence. Her characters are complex and haunting, and her writing is remarkable for its sinewy grace." —TIME MAGAZINE
In this enchanting collection of short stories, Ursula K. Le Guin brings to mainstream fiction the same virtuosity that won her a high place in the realm of science fiction. In these stories she casts a romantic spell of imaginary countries inhabited by imaginary people with real problems. Her writing, laced with wit and restraint, can be compared to the work of Isak Dinesen. While the stories glide back and forth in rime, constant themes appear: the insatiable urge for human freedom, the terrors of governmental tyranny and persecution, and the essential need for love.
All the richness of her imagination is at play in Orsinion Tales, and the collection demonstrates that Ursula K. Le Guin is one of the most distinguished writers of our time.
