Walking in the Shade: Volume Two of My Autobiography, 1949–1962: Volume Two of My Autobiography, 1949-62 Summary


The second volume of the autobiography of Doris Lessing, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. `Walking in the Shade' begins in 1949, as Doris Lessing arrives in London with nothing but her young son and the manuscript of her first novel. With humour and clear-sightedness, she records her battles of the next decade: her involvement with communism, her love affairs, her struggle with poverty, the difficulties she faced as a young single mother. But as well there is the success of that first novel, `The Grass Is Singing', and meetings with personalities and opinion-makers - Kenneth Tynan, John Osborne, Bertrand Russell and others.Describing, too, the genesis of `The Golden Notebook', this book sees Lessing emerge as one of the most exciting, and groundbreaking, novelists of the post-war generation, and one of the twentieth century's great writers.
