The 50th anniversary edition of Ursula K. Le Guin's classic Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel that explores the effects of gender on culture and society--with new material from David Mitchell and Charlie Jane Anders.
A lone human ambassador is sent to the icebound planet of Winter, a world without sexual prejudice, where the inhabitants' gender is fluid. His goal is to facilitate Winter's inclusion in a growing intergalactic civilization. But to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own views and those of the strange, intriguing culture he encounters . . . Embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement in the annals of science fiction.
