A collection of four interconnected novellas linked by character and setting. On the twin planets Werel and Yeowe, at the far end of our universe, Le Guin has created a society as complex and as troubled as any on Earth, and peopled it with unforgettable characters struggling to become fully human. For the disgraced revolutionary Abberkam, the callow "space brat" Solly, the androgynous artist Batikam, the haughty soldier Teyeo, the Ekumen historian and Hainish exile Havzhiva, freedom and duty both begin in the heart, and success as well as failure has its costs.
Fine in very near fine dust wrapper and protective mylar.
