Incredible Good Fortune is Ursula K. Le Guin's sixth collection of poems, spanning the years 2000 to 2005. These poems by the celebrated author of Always Coming Home and The Language of the Night showcase Le Guin's many facets as a writer. Passionate, humanitarian, and sensuously aware of the world's vitality, Le Guin's work can also be melancholy, playful, and dreamlike. Full of insight, humor, and wisdom, this collection includes close observations of day-to-day life, reflections on childhood and growing older, and explorations of myth and fable.
Praise for Incredible Good Fortune:
One of world's most honored authors of science fiction and young adult fantasy, Le Guin has also maintained a serious, if less often recognized, career as a poet. This sixth gathering of poems comprises compact and often songlike work, adroit in both Western (rhyming quatrains, couplets) and non-Western (meditation and praise song) modes."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Le Guin's poetic voice is clear and lyrical; her many fans will not be disappointed."—Pat Monaghan, Booklist
