Description
Cheek by Jowl is a collection of talks and essays on how and why fantasy matters by Ursula K. Le Guin. In these essays, the author argues passionately that the homogenization of our world makes the work of fantasy essential for helping us break through what she calls the reality trap. Le Guin writes not only of the pleasures of her own childhood reading, but also about what fantasy means for all of us living in the global twenty-first century.
