Literature Nobel Prize winner, Doris Lessing

By Katharine Swan On Friday, October 12, 2007 At 1:28 PM

The Nobel Prize for Literature was just awarded to Doris Lessing. I hadn't heard of her before, but I've already requested a couple of her books from the library: The Grass is Singing and The Golden Notebook, both mentioned in the article.

I have quite a backlog of books to read right now, but probably in about a month or so you should see these books pop up on my book blog, Livre du Jour.

Be sure to read and/or listen to the NPR story on Doris Lessing and the Nobel Prize — it is quite interesting!

Hey, I've actually heard of her! Usually it's someone I've never heard of. Maybe I'm becoming more sophisticated (doubt it!). I've read The Golden Notebook but not the other.
