"Like all great writers of fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin creates imaginary worlds that restore us, hearts eased, to our own.-The Boston Globe
"She can lift fiction to the level of poetry and compress it to the density of allegory-in The Telling, she does both, gorgeously."-Jonathan Lethem
"Everything that has been said about Le Guin-that she is a lush prose stylist, that she is a poet in every line, that her books make readers think and thinkers read-is here on display in her newest Hainish novel."-Jane Yolen two-time Nebula winner and author of The Books of Great Alta
