The great Ursula LeGuin of recent passing translated this loosely connected stories about Empire, emperors, and power.

If you are looking for a novel, this is not your book. But, if you are looking for evocative and provocative descriptions of government power, to be turned around in one's palate like fine chocolate or wine, by all means pick this one up.

Kids as young as 13 will understand all the words, but the nuances are adult, poetic, evocative. Some kids will get that young. Others will never get it, even as adults. Still, it's worth the read.
