Doris Lessing



Doris Lessing, Persian-born, Rhodesian-raised, London-residing novelist, wins the Nobel Prize in Literature... NY Times ... AP ... London Times ... Guardian ... Telegraph ... LA Times ... WP ... Nation ... Open Democracy ... NY Sun ... The Valve

Those who know me also know that I have been talking about Lessing for years, and having heard the term "Doris who?" so many times makes this a personal vindication. I highly recommand SHIKASTA the first book in the Canopus in Argos trilogy for the Utopian minded, plus The Golden Notebook considered by many as the first truly feminist novel.
