Doris Lessing, winner of the 2007 Nobel Prize for Literature, is both ‘hostess’ and ‘alien’ – the hostess, who presents a public face to the world, and the private person who writes, dreams and ‘experiments with her life’.
Alan Yentob meets the feisty 88-year-old whose ‘myth country’ is still the African bush where she was brought up. All her life she’s been fighting her mother – a relationship she explores in her latest book.
Armed with a cup of tea and nothing to prove, Doris Lessing
addressed her past with a vivid wit.Lucy Mangan, The Guardian
