Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

     Here is the first new book of poems in more than a decade from the author so well known for her thought-provoking science fiction novels. It is also the most autobiographical of Ursula K. Le Guin's five poetry collections, taking its inspiration from the wisdom and perspective that a woman attains in her sixties. Here she is at turns wry, playful, and sharply critical, with finely observed details of her day-to-day life and moving philosophical reflections on growing older.

Synopsis:

Sixty Odd is Ursula K. Le Guin's fifth collection of poems. At turns wry, playful, and sharply critical, Le Guin eloquently explores themes ranging from finely observed details of her day-to-day life, to moving philosophical reflections on her childhood and growing older. Taken as a whole, the collection embodies the heart of Le Guin's best work: writing that is full of insight, humor, and genuine wisdom.
