Spine a bit creased, a little edge wear, small paper lift on front cover, some scuffing to back cover. A little tanning but text is clear and unmarked. A nice copy.

Orsinia, a fictional Central European country, provides the setting for several of Le Guin's stories. 'Malafrena' is set in the 1820s when Orsinia was part of the Austrian Empire.
"Malafrena transports the reader to a Europe of the Imagination, Orsinia, where Itale Sorde is swept up in the revolutionary storms of his day, renouncing both his inheritance and the love of his life for his dream of revolution and the fiery woman who wants him for her own . . . "
"Malafrena is not a real place. Itale never dreamed of love, nor Piera of him. Estenskar did not live, only his poems. Only the dreams themselves are real, only their youth, only the wind called Freedom that swept through their lives like a storm unforgettable. "; 6" - 7" Tall
