Unlocking the Air: And Other Stories

by Ursula K. Le Guin
Release date: 1996
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

Ursula Le Guin, the much-honored author of 16 novels, 80 short stories, 10 books for children, several volumes of poetry, and numerous screenplays once again demonstrates her virtuosity and versatility in this superb collection of short stories.

Written over a span of 12 years, and previously published in such prestigious publications as The New Yorker, Harpers, Omni, and Playboy, these stories are connected in the way they approach reality while diffusing the traditional boundaries of realism, magical realism, and surrealism. In each, Le Guin finds the detail that reveals the strange in everyday life, or the unexpected depths of an ordinary person.

Written with wit, zest, and a passionate sense of human frailty and toughness, Unlocking the Air and Other Stories is superb fiction by a beloved storyteller at the height of her power.
