Author Ursula K. Le Guin was asked twenty questions by the Times Literary Supplement, March 4, 2017.

Below is an answer that any of us who are in love with fields, old fields will appreciate. It is another reason I like her. The entire interview is a delight.

What will your field look like twenty-five years from now?

My field? What is my field, I wonder. My favourite field is the one below the barn at the old ranch in California. I hope in twenty-five years it looks just the way it does now, all wild oats and chicory and foxtail and voles and jackrabbits and quail.

Check Le Guin's website for excerpts from short stories, a biography, and a map of Earthsea.
