The cover of a recent edition of The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin. A large white moon fills the top of the image, with a plain brown landscape below.

Ursula K Le Guin’s The Dispossessed is a thought experiment in anarchist practice, a meditation on individual relationships as a model for political action, a treatise on the philosophy and physics of time, a climate change novel, and so full of other things that it didn’t have room for the communal pickle barrels.*

Join us on Wednesday, June 29th at 7:00 PM at the bookstore for the first meeting of the Iffy Books reading group, featuring The Dispossessed. Stop by the shop ahead of time to pick up a copy, available for $8.99.

Discussion hosted by Joshua Kopin.

Q: If you could make a change to anything you’ve written over the years, what would it be? / A: In The Dispossessed, I would mention the communal pickle barrels at street corners in the big towns, restocked by whoever in the community has made or kept more pickles than they need. I knew about the free pickles all along, but never could fit them into the book.
