Summary (From the publisher):

Sixty Odd is Ursula K. Le Guin's fifth collection of poems. At turns wry, playful, and sharply critical, Le Guin eloquently explores themes ranging from finely observed details of her day-to-day life, to moving philosophical reflections on her childhood and growing older. Taken as a whole, the collection embodies the heart of Le Guin's best work: writing that is full of insight, humor, and genuine wisdom.
