really liked it
Read from July 05 to 07, 2011 — I own a copy

As the subtitle suggests, there are multiple subjects at play in these essays, and while I found Leguin's thinking and writing about feminism to be extraordinary, her discussions of narrative intelligent and thought provoking (especially her questioning of conflict as the central motivating force in narrative), I was mostly unimpressed with the writings focusing on place. Therefore, four stars for a book full of five star essays.

Michael I think I'll read nothing but LeGuin for a while (I mean non-professionally--I probably can't get away with a dissertation filled with LeGuin references).) Almost done with The Wind's Twelve Quarters.
