Understanding Ursula K. Le Guin
'...Elizabeth Cummin's [book] is a superb literary study of the American science fiction & fantasy writer...Unlike many other literary studies of Le Guin's works that simply print unintegrated essays, [this book] has a tight focus & flow that other literary critics would do well to study...Very highly recommended...--Wilson Library Bulletin.
