Doris Lessing 70s Vintage Paperback Collection

Doris Lessing 70s Vintage Paperback Collection. Panther.

A beautiful collection of six of Doris Lessing's best work; including her feminist masterpiece, The Golden Notebook. "...a structurally inventive and loosely autobiographical tale, that remained her best-known work. The 1962 book was daring in its day for its frank exploration of the inner lives of women who, unencumbered by marriage, were free to raise children, or not, and pursue work and their sex lives as they chose. The book dealt openly with topics like menstruation and orgasm, as well as with the mechanics of emotional breakdown.(The New York Times, 2013).
