Reviews

"This work will rank with the foremost fictional commentaries on events in our century.""-- Milwaukee Journal""Doris Lessing is the Cassandra of the documentary novel...crying for something harshly denied to our age: a longing for magic, for the irrational. Her concern for life, her independence of judgment and her gift for diagnosing our hydra-headed social ills is extraordinary." -- "Observer" "She is not the only best woman novelist we have but one of the most serious and intelligent and honest writers of the whole post-war generation." -- "Sunday Times" (London)"Imaginatively conceived...Lessing is a shrewd, dispassionate observer of contemporary history." -- "New Republic""I read the Children of Violence novels and began to understand how a person could write the problems of the world in a compelling and beautiful way. And it seemed to me that was the most important thing I could ever do." -- Barbara Kingsolver"A woman has slipped into the uneasy circle of England's Angry Young Men. No charter member of the club--not even Osborne or Amis--can have mush to teach author Doris Lessing." -- "Time"
