The Left Hand of Darkness

Author: Ursula LeGuin

Category: Fantasy/ Science Fiction

Summary: Genly Ai is an emissary from the human galaxy to Winter, a lost, stray world. His mission is to bring the planet back into the fold of an evolving galactic civilization, but to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own culture and prejudices and those that he encounters. On a planet where people are of no gender--or both--this is a broad gulf indeed. The Left Hand of Darkness is science fiction for the thinking reader.
