WORDS ARE MY MATTER Writings About Life and Books, 2000-2016, with a Journal of a Writer's Week

by | Read by Laural Merlington

Contemporary Culture • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Laural Merlington provides a subtle and strong reading of these assorted nonfiction pieces by the late, great Ursula K. Le Guin. Though she's best known for her fantasy and science fiction, this audiobook is a treasure trove for listeners interested in Le Guin's incisive writings on literature, poetry, genre trappings, specific books, her fellow authors, and so much more. Prepare to add several titles to your own reading/listening list, as an entire section features past book reviews by Le Guin. Merlington's resonant voice channels Le Guin's passion, intelligence, and sense of humor. Her performance is excellent but also understated, allowing Le Guin and her words to be the primary focus.
