Birthday of the World by Ursula Le Guin

If you are a fan of Le Guin's more widely-known works Left Hand of Darkness and the Dispossessed, do yourself a favor and check out this collection of stories set on those and other worlds within the same shared universe (collectively known as the Hainish Cycle). Le Guin, as always, is in top form exploring the ways different cultures can inflect our approaches to gender, relationships, family, tradition, reality, history and make us so frustratingly, beautifully, pettily, fluidly human.
