Description
This is Doris Lessing's account of her first journey back to Africa, the land in which she grew up and in which so much of her emotion and her concern remained invested. Returning to Southern Rhodesia in 1956, she found that her love of Africa had remained as strong as her hatred of the idea of "white supremacy" espoused by its ruling class. She records a journey that was both personal and, inevitably, political, as the tensions between colonialism and self-determination were at their most impassioned. Awarded the Nobel Prize in 2007, Lessing (19192013) was one of the most celebrated and distinguished writers of our time, receiving the Somerset Maugham Award, the David Cohen Memorial Prize for British Literature, the James Tait Black Prize, Spain's Prix Catalunya and Prince of Asturias Prize, and a dozen other prestigious literary awards.

"Ms. Lessing has captured the sight and sound and smell of Africa, and put it down on paper so that it may become real and tangible to those who have never set foot on African soil."Sunday Times (London)
