Born OTD in 1919, Iranian-born novelist, poet & playwright, Doris Lessing. The landmark novel of the 60s – a powerful account of a woman searching for her personal, political & professional identity while facing rejection and betrayal. In 1950s London, novelist Anna Wulf struggles with writer’s block. Divorced with a young child, & fearful of going mad, Anna records her experiences in four coloured notebooks: black for her writing life, red for political views, yellow for emotions, blue for everyday events.

 

Golden Notebook

But it is a fifth notebook – the golden notebook – that finally pulls these wayward strands of her life together. Widely regarded as Doris Lessing’s masterpiece and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, `The Golden Notebook’ is wry and perceptive, bold and indispensable.
