"The Lathe of Heaven" is George Orr's story - a man who dreams things into being, for better or for worse. It is a dark vision and a warning - a fable of power uncontrolled and uncontrollable - a truly prescient and startling view of humanity, and the consequences of God-playing. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece.

"A very good book...A writer's writer, Ursula Le Guin brings reality itself to the proving ground."--Theodore Sturgeon"Profound...Beautifully wrought...Her percetions of such matters as geopolitics, race, socialized medicine, and the patient/shrink relationship are razor sharp and more than a little cutting."--"National Review""Le Guin neatly and eerily conveys the bad-dream civilization which is George's everyday world."--"Washington Post Book World""A brilliant novel about the future."--"Pensacola News""Gracefully developed...Extremely inventive...What science fiction is supposed to do."--"Newsweek""A rare and powerful synthesis of poetry and science, reason and emotion."--"The New York Times" "Profound. Beautifully wrought...[Le Guin's] perceptions of such matters as geopolitics, race, socialized medicine, and the patient-shrink relationship are razor sharp and more than a little cutting." -- "National Review" "When I read "The Lathe of Heaven" as a young man, my mind was boggled; now when I read it, more than twenty-five years later, it breaks my heart. Only a great work of literature can bridge - so thrillingly - that impossible span."--Michael Chabon "A rare and powerful synthesis of poetry and science, reason and emotion."--The New York Times "Gracefully developed...extremely inventive....
