The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin


SKU: 9781473228412 Categories: , Tags: , ,


One of the very best must-read novels of all time – with a new introduction by Roddy Doyle

‘There was a wall. It did not look important – even a child could climb it.

But the idea was real. Like all walls it was ambiguous, two-faced. What was inside it and what was outside it depended upon which side of it you were on…’Shevek is brilliant scientist who is attempting to find a new theory of time – but there are those who are jealous of his work, and will do anything to block him.

So he leaves his homeland, hoping to find a place of more liberty and tolerance. Initially feted, Shevek soon finds himself being used as a pawn in a deadly political game. With powerful themes of freedom, society and the natural world’s influence on competition and co-operation, THE DISPOSSESSED is a true classic of the 20th century.

‘A well told tale signifying a good deal; one to be read again and again’ THE TIMES

‘The book I wish I had written … It’s so far away from my own imagination, I’d love to sit at my desk one day and discover that I could think and write like Ursula Le Guin’ Roddy Doyle

‘Le Guin is a writer of phenomenal power’ OBSERVER
