The Found and the Lost: The Collected Novellas of Ursula K. Le Guin (Paperback)
Le Guin can do more with a novella than most people can do with a full-length book. She writes with complexity about justice, cruelty, home, and grief just as deftly as she moves between science fiction, fantasy, and realism, and each of these stories is populated by characters so real you can almost feel their heartbeats through the pages. These shorter works span multiple genres and, taken together, make a great introduction to the career of an incredible writer.— From Laura
Every novella by Ursula K. Le Guin, an icon in American literature, collected for the first time in one breathtaking volume.
