Summary
Ursula K. Le Guin's richly-imagined vision of a post-apocalyptic California, in a newly expanded version prepared shortly before her death. This fourth volume in the Library of America's definitive Ursula K. Le Guin edition presents her most ambitious novel and finest achievement, a mid-career masterpiece that showcases her unique genius for world building. Framed as an anthropologist's report on the Kesh, survivors of ecological catastrophe living in a future Napa Valley, Always Coming Home (1985) is an utterly original tapestry of history and myth, fable and poetry, story- telling and song. Prepared in close consultation with the author, this expanded edition features new material added just before her death, including for the first time two "missing" chapters of the Kesh novel, Dangerous People. The volume concludes with a selection of Le Guin's essays about the novel's genesis and larger aims, a note on its editorial and publication history, and an updated chronology of Le Guin's life and career
