Summary
"Orsinia...a land of mediaeval forests, stonewalled cities, and railways reaching into the mountains where the old gods dwell. A country where life is harsh, dreams are gentle, and people feel torn by powerful forces and fight to remain whole. In this collection, Ursula K. Le Guin brings to mainstream fiction the same compelling mastery of word and deed, of story and character, of violence and love, that has won her the Pushcart Prize, and the Kafka and National Book Awards."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
The universal need for human freedom and love and the horrors of government oppression are recurring themes in this collection of eleven haunting pieces of short fiction, all set in the imaginary Eastern European country of Orsinia
