Doris Lessing – Free eBook


on not winning the nobel prize

Free eBook of Doris Lessing’s Nobel Lecture.

In her lecture, On Not Winning the Nobel Prize, Lessing ponders the changing role of reading in modern society, which takes her back to Africa in the 1980s, where she witnesses a hunger and thirst for books in mudhuts, ill equipped schools and water queues. In contrast, Lessing worries about the fragmented nature of contemporary education but is thankful for the rich resource of literature and the eternal call for storytelling.
