Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From award-winning author Ursula K. Le Guin comes a highly anticipated addition to her acclaimed Hainish cycle, “a social anthropology of the future, fascinating and utterly believable.” (Peter S. Beagle)

Once a culturally rich world, the planet Aka has been utterly transformed by technology. Records of the past have been destroyed, and citizens are strictly monitored. But an official observer from Earth named Sutty has learned of a group of outcasts who live in the wilderness. They still believe in the ancient ways and still practice its lost religionthe Telling. Intrigued by their beliefs, Sutty joins them on a sacred pilgrimage into the mountains…and into the dangerous terrain of her own heart, mind, and soul.

Review:

"In The Telling...Le Guin combines the gifts of a pure storyteller at the height of her powers with a wise and passionate heart and the disciplined, ceaselessly questioning mind of a true philosopher." Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn

Review:

"The Telling will make you anticipate tomorrow a bit differently than you did yesterday." Denver Rocky Mountain News

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of The Left Hand of Darkness delivers the latest novel in the Hainish Cycle. Sutty, an observer from Earth, has been assigned to a new world in which past beliefs are outlawed and every citizen must be a producer-consumer. Sutty discovers the remnants of a banned religion and a hidden culture and learns a lot about herself.
