Le Guin can do more with a novella than most people can do with a full-length book. She writes with complexity about justice, cruelty, home, and grief just as deftly as she moves between science fiction, fantasy, and realism, and each of these stories is populated by characters so real you can almost feel their heartbeats through the pages. These shorter works span multiple genres and, taken together, make a great introduction to the career of an incredible writer.

Try shorter format writing (but maybe compiled in big collections, like this 832-pager) from Elliott Bay Book Company and other independent bookstores. Some of us find it a great way to read when our attention is challenged.
