Ursula K. Le Guin: The Last Interview: and Other Conversations:  Ursula K. Le Guin and David Streitfeld 

When she began writing in the 1960s, Ursula K. Le Guin was as much of a literary outsider as one can be: a woman writing in a landscape dominated by men, a science fiction and fantasy author in an era that dismissed "enre" literature as unserious, and a westerner living far from fashionable East Coast publishing circles. The interviews collected here - spanning a remarkable forty years of productivity, and covering everything from her Berkeley childhood to Le Guin envisioning the end of capitalism - highlight that unique perspective, which conjured some of the most prescient and lasting books in modern literature.
