Always Coming Home (California Fiction)

Always Coming Home (California Fiction)

"You've heard of Earthsea, The Dispossessed, The Left Hand of Darkness... but Always Coming Home is different.

Yes, it's a speculative work, but it's rooted in its sense of place: you will recognize the wilds of a future Northern California.

Yes, there's a linear narrative, as Stone Telling struggles with an identity caught between two cultures, but it comes in pieces: the work is knitted together with the plays, poems, and myths of one of these people.

It is a work of anthropological possibility.

It is a strange and beautiful act of world building.

It changed the way I exist within the world.

Thank you, Ms. Le Guin; your words were food."

Ursula Le Guin's Always Coming Home is a major work of the imagination from one of America's most respected writers of science fiction. More than five years in the making, it is a novel unlike any other. A rich and complex interweaving of story and fable, poem, artwork, and music, it totally immerses the reader in the culture of the Kesh, a peaceful people of the far future who inhabit a place called the Valley on the Northern Pacific Coast.
