Doris Lessing (1919-2013), a prolific contemporary author was awarded The Nobel Prize for Literature in 2007 for a life time of work. Examining five decades of Lessing's unique life, narrative strategies, and the literary traditions that she drew upon and improvised, this book highlights her extraordinary significance as a writer of our times and for our times. Lessing's fiction and non-fiction provide a seminal understanding of the key issues that shaped the Twentieth Century.

Autodidactic and keenly interested in the world around her, Lessing flagged the problems of racism in Africa, the inequity of class in modern England, the limitations of white -middle-class women's movements that overlooked the rights of women across race and class, the marginalization of small private individuals, the horror of nuclear war, the need for disarmament, hazardous global expansion in the face of unrelenting technological progress, the atomization of modern families, violence, and the urgent need for alternate modes of viewing, well before her contemporaries.

Making futuristic projections through innumerable genres of writing such as realistic narratives, memoirs, diaries and science fiction, Lessing examines myth, psychoanalysis, and Marxist perspectives; engaging with a gamut of experiences that have defined modernity and sets up feminist blueprints that challenge atrophying patriarchal hegemonies.
