The Wild Girls (collection)


The Wild Girls is a short story or novelette, generally classified as science fiction. It's a story about a fictional culture that have existing in prehistoric times, in the far future, on a fictional planet, or in a fictional plane of existence; but it isn't science fiction - it's fiction, cultural fiction - the thing that Le Guin does best.

The book also is a collection of poems, essays and an interview of Le Guin by Terry Bisson. If you are a fan of Ursula K Le Guin, this is worth the read.
