    Six of these tales are set in the author's signature world of the Ekumen, a world made familiar in her award-winning novel The Left Hand of Darkness. The title story was hailed by Publisher's Weekly as "remarkable...a standout." Paradises Lost is a mesmerizing novella of space exploration and the pursuit of happiness. These stories explore complex social interactions, troublesome issues of gender and sex, and the meaning of transformation, religion, and history.

    What made the experience of listening to The Birthday of the World and Other Stories the most enjoyable?

    Ursula LeGuin is an exceptional storyteller who presents us with fictional societies that open our eyes (in this case, our ears) to new, unimagined possibilities of human interaction.
