Nobel Prize winner Lessing signs typescript from her 1974 Memories of a Survivor
Typescript signed: "Doris Lessing/11th March 1980", 1 page, 8½x11. Doris Lessing (1919-2013) published her first novel, The Grass is Singing, in 1949, but her breakthrough novel, The Golden Notebook, appeared in 1962. Originally attracted to Marxism, she ultimately rejected the doctrine because it ignores the spiritual dimension of life. Her later works reflect her interest in Sufism. Lessing rejected a Dame hood, but has accepted other honors from the Crown. In 2007 she became the oldest person ever to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Memoirs of a Survivor marked a new phase in Lessing's writing, a shift away from introspective psychological themes, to explorations of the human future, culminating in her science fiction novels. Fine condition.
