Doris Lessing

To my astonishment, Rondi, vastly better read than I, asserts no direct knowledge of the writing of Doris Lessing.

Now I can say I actually did read Doris Lessing long ago - I read her Martha Quest novels, and they were 1970s feminism, and this is not so bad; it is how I discovered that maybe the woman's view of having sex is not totally pleasing to the male ego. In fact she was much more brutal.

For this alone I am pleased she won the prize this year.

This makes me want to read Martha Quest. Also, readers are leaving interesting comments on my blog.
