Ursula K. Le Guin

THE TELLING is a novel by Ursula K. Le Guin that centers around a governess who is hired to care for the children of an aristocratic family on an isolated island off the coast of Oregon.Le Guin's writing and characters are imaginative, and her observations into humanity's relationship with language are fascinating. This book is worth reading for its beautiful prose alone, but it also offers a unique perspective on gender norms in society, and how we view dystopian futures.THE TELLING invites us to think about what has been lost and what we can keep or change in order to create a better world for our children.
