“She is a splendid short-story writer…Fiction, like Borges’s, that finds its life in the interstices between the borders of speculative fiction and realism.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Like all great writers of fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin creates imaginary worlds that restore us, hearts eased, to our own.” The Boston Globe
