  1. I am so glad to see Michael Dirda weighing in here, too. He’s such a brilliant critic. The Nation piece was excellent, and I can’t wait to read the incomparable Julie Phillips on the incomparable Ursula K. Le Guin!

  2. “In truth, I don’t think she needs to. By now, a certain literature committee in Sweden must know that Ursula K. Le Guin is as Nobel-worthy as any other author alive.” — Dirda
