In conversation with author Charles Yu

(How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe)

One of the world’s most renowned authors of fantasy fiction, Le Guin is known for creating magical alternate worlds of moral complexity and psychological sophistication. This fall, we celebrate both a new volume of her poetry, Finding My Elegy, and the republication of her seminal Books of Earthsea trilogy.

Ursula K. Le Guin is one of the world’s preeminent fantasy writers as well as an accomplished poet. She has received five Hugo Awards, six Nebula Awards, the National Book Award, Margaret A. Edwards Award, the Kafka Award, a Pushcart Prize and the Harold D. Vursell Memorial Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Charles Yu is the author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, which was named one of the best books of the year by Time magazine. He received the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 Award for his story collection Third Class Superhero.  His work has been published in The New York Times, Playboy, and Slate, among other periodicals.
