The Lathe Of Heaven, Paperback / softback Book

The Lathe Of Heaven Paperback / softback

Part of the S.F. Masterworks series

Paperback / softback


'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 centre ...

Literature will miss her. There's no one like her' Zadie Smith'Le Guin is a writer of phenomenal power' OBSERVERThrough his dreams, George Orr can make alternate realities real - but who is controlling him?War rages and global warming wreaks havoc on the quality of life everywhere as seven billion people jostle for living space and food.

For George Orr, a mild and unremarkable man, the world is overwhelmingly difficult.

But George is different: his dreams can change reality - although he has no means of controlling this extraordinary power. Psychiatrist Dr William Haber offers to help, directing George to dream a world without racism.

But as ambition gets the better of ethics, no one can predict the devastating consequences.
