Ursula K. Le Guin's most ambitious novel, a richly-imagined vision of post-apocalyptic California, in a newly expanded version prepared shortly before her death

This fourth volume in the authoritative Library of America edition of Ursula K. Le Guin's work presents perhaps her finest achievement, Always Coming Home (1985), a lush novel in the form of an anthropologist's report of the Kesh society, a people who "might be going to have lived a long, long time from now" in a future California. An utterly original combination of fables and poems, songs and sketches, the original text of the novel is supplemented in this definitive new edition with never-before-published additional texts Le Guin 'translated' from the Kesh just before her death, including for the first time the complete text of the short novel-within-a-novel, Dangerous People. Also here are 100 pages of Le Guin's essays on the extraordinary composition of Always Coming Home, and all 100 of Margaret Chodos's original drawings. Set in a future Napa Valley, California, after an apocalypse caused by industrialization and environmental exploitation, the book concerns a matrilineal people who have learned to live in balance not only with their environment but between genders. Comprising interwoven stories, poems, histories, myths, and artwork, the book is--more even than Tolkien's Silmarillion--a complete imagining of a world, down to an alphabet and glossary of the Kesh language, recipes, and music.
