About the Author:

Doris Lessing was born of British parents in Persia, in 1919, and moved with her family to Southern Rhodesia when she was five years old. She went to England in 1949 and has lived there ever since. She is the author of more than thirty books—novels, stories, reportage, poems, and plays. In 2007, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Review:

“A brilliant and untamed image of the possibilities that may still constitute man’s destiny.” –Time

“Touching and beautiful.” –The New York Review of Books

“An excursion into private consciousness...beginning with everyday mentality and ending up in the darkest reaches of the unconscious at its most primitive.” –The Washington Post Book World
