birthday of the world and other stories
by ursula k leguin. i'm relaizing more and more why i'm drawn to her writing. she writes sci fi ethnographies. it's unreal how much they resemble anthropological work. the detail, the confusion of the researcher who is at once outside of and within the studied culture, the "obsession" with the sex lives of the informants...it is really a striking similarity. read her. she rocks.
