In a series of conversations with Between The Covers’s David Naimon, Ursula K. Le Guin discusses her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—both her process and her philosophy—with all the wisdom, profundity, and rigour we expect from one of our great American writers. When the New York Times called Ursula K. Le Guin, “America’s greatest living science fiction writer,” they just might have undersold her legacy. It’s hard to look at her vast body of work—novels and stories across multiple genres, poems, translations, essays, speeches, and criticism—and see anything but one of our greatest writers, period. In a series of interviews with David Naimon (Between the Covers), Le Guin discusses craft, aesthetics, and philosophy in her fiction, poetry, and nonfiction respectively. The discussions provide ample advice and guidance for writers of every level, but also give Le Guin a chance to to sound off on some of her favorite subjects: the genre wars, the patriarchy, the natural world, and what, in her opinion, makes for great writing. With excerpts from her own work and those books that she’s looked to for inspiration and guidance, this volume will be a treat for Le Guin’s longtime readers and a perfect introduction for those first approaching her writing.

Conversations with Ursula K. Le Guin assembles interviews with the renowned science-fiction and fantasy author of The Left Hand of Darkness, The Dispossessed, The Lathe of Heaven, and the Earthsea sequence of novels and stories. For nearly five decades, Le Guin (b. 1929) has enjoyed immense success--both critical and popular--in science fiction and fantasy. But she has also published well-received works in such genres as realistic fiction, poetry, children's literature, criticism, and translation. In the pieces collected here, Le Guin takes every interview not as an opportunity to recapitulate long-held views but as an occasion for in-depth intellectual discourse. In interviews spanning over twenty-five years of her literary career, including a previously unpublished piece conducted by the volume's editor, Le Guin talks about such diverse subjects as U.S. foreign policy, the history of architecture, the place of women and feminist consciousness in American literature, and the differences between science fiction and fantasy. Carl Freedman is professor of English at Louisiana State University and is the author of Critical Theory and Science Fiction; The Incomplete Projects: Marxism, Modernity, and the Politics of Culture; and George Orwell: A Study in Ideology and Literary Form.

Inspirierend, ermutigend, provokant: Ratschläge für Nachwuchsautoren Wie muss die erste Zeile eines Buches aussehen? Wie stellt man sich der leeren weißen Seite? Wie erschafft man Figuren? Colum McCann gibt angehenden Schriftstellern Anregungen für den Schreibprozess und praktische Tipps: wie man einen Agenten findet, wie viele Schreibpausen man einlegen sollte und wie man am besten mit Kritikern umgeht. Er notiert Überlegungen zur Einstellung, die zum Schreiben nötig ist, und geht auf die mentalen und philosophischen Herausforderungen ein, die jedem Autor irgendwann begegnen. So entsteht ein zugleich empathischer wie pragmatischer Ratgeber für Schreibbegeisterte.

Ein einzigartiger Zugang zu Austers Werk Jedes seiner Bücher ist für Paul Auster eine Reise auf einer unbekannten Straße. Zusammen mit der Professorin Inge Birgitte Siegumfeldt hat er sich aufgemacht, diese Reisen noch einmal aus der Rückschau zu betrachten. Drei Jahre lang trafen sich beide zu Gesprächen über Austers Bücher. In einem intensiven, persönlichen Dialog erkunden sie seine großen Romane und die autobiographischen Texte. Auster gibt dabei einen intimen Einblick in seine Arbeit, erzählt amüsante Anekdoten und spricht offen wie selten über Inspirationsquellen und Motivation. Die scharfsinnigen Fragen und Gedanken Siegumfeldts fordern den Autor heraus, und so entsteht ein überraschender, kluger Austausch zweier Literaturliebhaber.

“Resistance and change often begin in art. Very often in our art, the art of words.” —Ursula K. Le Guin When she began writing in the 1960s, Ursula K. Le Guin was as much of a literary outsider as one can be: a woman writing in a landscape dominated by men, a science fiction and fantasy author in an era that dismissed “genre” literature as unserious, and a westerner living far from fashionable East Coast publishing circles. The interviews collected here—spanning a remarkable forty years of productivity, and covering everything from her Berkeley childhood to Le Guin envisioning the end of capitalism—highlight that unique perspective, which conjured some of the most prescient and lasting books in modern literature.
