To dream of a different world can be poetic. To dream a different world into being can be terrifying. Just how terrifying is vividly portrayed in this exciting and moving new novel by Ursula K. Le Guin.

George Orr, frightened because he has discovered that he has the power of affective dreaming, consults a psychiatrist, Dr. Haber. Through hypnosis and electronics Haber attempts to dictate the mild-mannered Orr's dreams into creating a world at peace with itself. Orr reluctantly allows him to undertake the project, but as things go wrong he seeks the help of a lawyer, Heather Lalache, for legal redress.

What follows is a clash of wills and the desperate effort of the tortured Orr to restrain his new found destructive capacity.

Seldom has a writer so brilliantly set forth the drama of man;s ideals at war with his tragic fallibility.
