Gosh, we are so fortunate to be alive at the same time as someone like Ursula K. Le Guin. Her memoir No Time to Spare is a collection of essays in which she talks about literature, politics, belief, aging, and life. It is absolutely delightful. She’s such an interesting person. Even when she’s talking about her cat, Pard, there’s a deeper layer to her musings. She sees the world with such clarity and wonder, and these essays allow the reader to experience that perspective and benefit from her wisdom. No Time to Spare is an intelligent, feel-good kind of read.
