Obituary: Doris Lessing (1919-2013)

What sad sad news! The great Doris Lessing has died. An era passes, eh? Read Guardian’s obituary here.

I shall write a proper obituary later. I read The Golden Notebook like encountering an unexpected land of friends when I was growing up in India in the eighties. The Prisons We Choose to Live Inside and The Fifth Child are great works of the imagination. Rest in peace, Doris Lessing! You were a mother to many of us!
