From the publisher:
A collection of interviews with the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature that serves as an invaluable companion to her work. Doris Lessing is one of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. These interviews give us her thoughts on her early years as a communist and fledgling writer in Southern Rhodesia, her views on marriage, the family and feminism, on other writers from Tolstoy to Lawrence, and on her later experiments in psychotherapy and mysticism. She reveals how these preoccupations have influenced her own work, from ‘The Golden Notebook’ to her acclaimed autobiographical masterpiece ‘Under My Skin’. The book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand not just Lessing, but also the profound impact she has had on our age.
