Author: 
Ursula K. Le Guin
Blurb: 
Human ambassador Genly Ai is sent to bring the frozen planet Gethen (also known as Winter) into a union with humanoid worlds. Gethen's people are primarily genderless but adopt gendered attributes once a month—either male or female, depending on context and relationships. Unless Genly can overcome his ingrained prejudices about the significance of "male" and "female," he may destroy both his mission and himself.
