Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "What wonders and adventures he has to tell us," is how Ursula K. LeGuin characterized the world of Robert Silverberg, and in The Longest Way Home, he takes readers on another dazzling odyssey. Joseph, just fifteen and alone in the land known at Getfen, awakens to an attack on the Great House in which he is visiting. Narrowly escaping with his life but still pursued by enemies who wish to see him killed, Joseph must journey across a dark, unfamiliar world in his quest to return to his home of HelikisÖand his father. He has thousands of miles to travel and much to learn, about this perilous alien world in transition, and about himself. "What the greatly changed Joseph might find at the end of his journey, and how he might react, are questions that I came to care deeply about." — New York Times Book Review "One of the world's finest stylists and storytellers." — San Antonis Express-News A New York Times Notable Book
