While definitely reminescent of Calvino or Borges, particularly the former’s Invisible Cities, this book’s vignettes and history of an imaginary empire is extremely compelling. Of course, with Ursula LeGuin as the translator, I would expect no less and definitely recommend this book for people who find magic in other places that never were (and not places that feel like Poughkeepsie despite the addition of wizards and dragons).
