David Naimon is a writer and the host of Portland, Oregon based podcast, Between the Covers. This all began as a series of recorded interviews with Ursula Le Guin for the show. Then they came to the conclusion that the interviews would make a good book. And they were right. It is fascinating. Naimon and Le Guin discussed writing in general, Le Guin’s books in particular. Excerpts from her works and from books she found useful are included. They discussed philosophy, poetry, nonfiction, fiction. Reading the book you feel included in the conversation, as if you were just sitting with friends. And it is a rare thing to be taken inside the mind of such an intelligent, thoughtful, interesting person. It is a little book that I read quickly. Now I think I will read it again, slowly.
