Doris Lessing Wins

November 2007
National Review;11/5/2007, Vol. 59 Issue 20, p28
The article presents the author's views on British writer Doris Lessing and her winning of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Her early days as a Communist and anti-nuclear activist are criticized, but her later repudiation of Communism and even feminism, and her two-volume autobiography, are viewed more charitably.
