    " If this is indicative of the rest of her work, I'm not that impressed. Average at best. "

    " Doris Lessing has a way with getting into the soul of women. I often find the way she opens stories to be difficult, but I know that by the end I will be impressed by her insight into the female mind. Every story has me nodding in agreement...yes, yes that't it. That's it. She speaks truth. "

About the Author
Author Doris Lessing

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. At fifteen she left school and worked in Salisbury. After the break-up of her first marriage she became involved in radical politics. She remarried in 1945, but in 1949 she left for England with her youngest child and from then on supported herself and her son by her writing. She is the author of more than twenty books, including novels, stories, reportage, poems, and plays. Recurring themes in her writing are her concerns with politics, the changing destiny of women, and a fear of technological disaster.
