I am not personally familiar with Ms. Lessing's work, but her story portrays her as a great author who appeared long before her time. I agree with her belief that women have problems being honest with themselves and seem to be prone to settling for less than what we can truly become. I haven't read "The Golden Notebook," but I plan to check it out of the library today. I would love to know firsthand what was penned and caused such a huge uproar in various communities. So sorry for your loss of such an inspirational woman. "May the Lord of peace himself give you peace constantly in every way."--2 Thessalonians 3:16. Do know that my thoughts are with Ms. Lessing's daughter and granddaughter during this difficult time.

Doris Lessing was a very favorite writer of my young adulthood. I read The Golden Notebook in a feminist study group in the late 70s, and it had a huge impact on me. Rest in Peace, Doris.

So sorry for your personal loss and for the world's loss of a tremendous influential writer. Below is an inspirational quote of hers from "The Golden Notebook." To a great thinker--who lived a first rate life!

“What's terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don't need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well you're capable of better.”
? Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
