Ursula K. Le Guin’s wide ranging article for The New York Times Book Review is now available to be heard, for free, on the excellent AssistiveMedia.org
website. Melissa Stewart’s straight reading is good, though she stumbles here and there over a word. The real meat of this piece comes with Le Guin’s insightful commentary on the history of female authorship. It covers everything from Virginia Woolf to Louisa May Alcott. Le Guin even discusses her own work. Check it out.
