This is Doris Lessing's follow-up to the first part of her autobiography, "Under My Skin". Here, we move into the heyday of her career, sparked off by the international success of her first novel in 1950. She went on to forge a unique role for herself in British literary and political life.
From the reviews of Under My Skin: 'Immediate, vivid, beautifully paced. By putting her life on the page, she has created her greatest work of art.' Hilary Mantel, London Review of Books 'Passionate and compelling, a book so packed with extraordinary images that it has obliterated almost everything else I read in 1994.' Rose Tremain
