based value judgments that relegate science fiction to a literary ghetto Le Guins book speaks both to readers, in the succinct and lucid reviews and introductions, and to writers, as in Making Up Stories, in which she urges writers to be readers, and The Hope of Rabbits, her journal of a week at a writers retreat Le Guins nominal topic is often a book, but her subjects are complex, reaching

beautiful, delightfully comfortable, and almost entirely practical Not completely, however, since it lacked stairs to the basement, and those to the upper floors ended in steps so narrow, furniture

twenty and pregnant in 1950, before Roe vs Wade, risking being expelled from college and choosing to have an abortion rather than bring a child into a bleak future Many pieces reflect her commitment to craft, her belief in the endurance of the book as physical object, and her objections to the false categorical value judgment that elevates literature above genrewhich would include much of Le Guins output of science fiction and childrens books Literature is the extant body of written art, she writes All novels belong to it One excellent piece, not previously published, rails against the
