RIP Doris Lessing

The world’s greatest living writer died today at the age of 94. I am bereft knowing there’ll be no more words from Doris Lessing.

On winning the Nobel Prize, the Swedish Academy described Lessing as an “epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny”. (from BBC)

At least I still have all those books of hers to re-read. Still.
I knew this day was coming. Still.
It is a sad day for literature.
