A literary masterpiece from one of the great writers of our time: 'Ursula Le Guin is a chemist of the heart' David Mitchell

'Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new'

Two people, until recently strangers, find themselves on a long, tortuous and dangerous journey across the ice. One is an outcast, forced to leave his beloved homeland; the other is fleeing from a different kind of persecution. What they have in common is curiosity, about others and themselves, and an almost unshakeable belief that the world can be a better place.

As they journey for over 800 miles, across the harshest, most inhospitable landscape, they discover the true meaning of friendship, and of love.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It's a giant thought experiment that's also a cracking good read about gender -- Neil Gaiman
Ursula Le Guin is a chemist of the heart -- David Mitchell
A rich and complex story of friendship and love * Guardian *
Ursula Le Guin was able to reimagine many concepts we take to be natural, shared, and unalterable - gender, utopia, creation, war, family, the city, the country - and reveal the all-too-human constructions at their center ... Literature will miss her. There's no one like her -- Zadie Smith
Ursula Le Guin is a chemist of the heart -- David Mitchell

“The Left Hand of Darkness”

I have read this book before but just recently I read it again and it is still as brilliant as I remember it. Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea books are some of the best known books in the genre, but don't overlook... More
