Loved by our collective!

George Orr exists like a jellyfish in the ocean: fluid, free flowing, and deceptively dangerous. His mild demeanor covers for the unpleasant truth that his dreams can alter reality. When an ambitious psychiatrist and sleep researcher discovers George's power, the doctor attempts to use his ability to change the world for the better. What follows is a mind-bending meditation on the limits of knowledge and what it means to shape the world around us. A philosophical musing on the clash between the drive toward progress and the willful equanimity of acceptance, Le Guin’s science-fiction classic is a meaningful read for anyone struggling to understand and respond to the scale of human-made suffering in our world today.
