‘This is probably the best book Doris Lessing has ever written. It would be a deprivation not to read it at once.’ Economist
‘An honest, perceptive, serious book.’ Irish Times
‘Painfully, poignantly authentic.’ David Lodge, New Statesman
‘A summer journey of self-discovery which ends amazingly, in an act of self-definition so searching, so acute and total, one puts down the book shaken, enlarged, in awe. It is an ostensibly simple story, simply told, developing all the way and deepening: the particular universalised in a narrative of compelling power. No wonder Mrs Lessing has been spoken of in the same breath as Nabokov and Solzhenitsyn.’ Sunday TimesAbout the Author:
