Dancing at the Edge of the World

Dancing at the Edge of the World: Thoughts on Words, Women, Places

by Ursula K. LeGuin

My aunt gave me this book when I turned 21. It’s not a novel, but a collection of essays and transcribed speeches – the commencement address given to a graduating class at Mills College, is one such speech.

Nearly fourteen years later, it’s still a book I go back to, and is most often found in the upstairs bathroom, the one between my office and Fuzzy’s.

LeGuin’s fiction is wonderful, but this book is truly insightful, inspiring, and interesting.
