The Unreal and the Real is a major event not to be missed. In this two-volume selection of Ursula K. Le Guin's best short stories-- as selected by the National Book Award winning author herself-- the reader will be delighted, provoked, amused, and faced with the sharp, satirical voice of one of the best short story writers of the present day. Where on Earth explores Le Guin's earthbound stories which range around the world from small town Oregon to middle Europe in the middle of revolution to summer camp.
Companion volume Outer Space, Inner Lands includes Le Guin's best known nonrealistic stories. Both volumes include new introductions by the author.
