Paperback: 160 pages
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
"The Lathe of Heaven" is George Orr's story - a man who dreams things into being, for better or for worse. It is a dark vision and a warning - a fable of power uncontrolled and uncontrollable - a truly prescient and startling view of humanity, and the consequences of God-playing. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece.
