With an Introduction by So Mayer and Sarah Shin
Space Crone brings together celebrated author Ursula K. Le Guin’s writings on feminism and gender for the first time. Famous for her experiments in gender in novels such as The Left Hand of Darkness, Le Guin’s feminism was deeply imaginative and original.
Witness to the twentieth century’s rebellions and upheavals, including women’s liberation, the civil rights movement and anti-war and environmental activism, Le Guin continued to fight for social and environmental justice throughout her life. Spanning fifty years of her life and work, Space Crone gathers speeches, essays and stories to offer new insights into Le Guin’s expansive, multispecies feminist consciousness: from its roots in her ecological and anti-war concerns, to her self-education about racism and her writing on motherhood and ageing.
