Read full description of the books:
Imaginen una costa escarpada, donde las olas del mar lamen unas rocas antiguas; ahí, tendidas entre el agua y la piedra, yacen unas hembras que nunca han conocido varón. Tienen su propio lenguaje y sus ritos ancestrales, pero viven en un mundo sin tiempo, sin dueño, y es la luna quien las fecunda. Dejemos ahora que una de ellas se aleje de la costa y se adentre en un valle hasta descubrir a unos seres extraños, parecidos a las hembras pero con el pecho liso y un pedazo de carne en forma de blando punzón bailando entre laspiernas... Así es como un patricio romano intenta describir los primeros días de vida en la tierra, una época de la que le han llegado unos pocos testimonios deslavazados. El hombre se pregunta cómo aprendieron a convivir nuestros ancestros e imagina sus primeros encuentros, las peleas, los reproches, el deseo de tocar y penetrar cuerpos nuevos, hasta llegar a ese primer gesto de ternura que nos definió para siempre como seres humanos. Con delicadeza e ironía, Doris Lessing cuenta cuál fue el origen de esa gran aventura que ahora nos tiene a todos, hombres y mujeres, atados a la vida. Ahí donde la ciencia no llega, el talento de una maestra abre caminos.

Read information about the authorBoth of her parents were British: her father, who had been crippled in World War I, was a clerk in the Imperial Bank of Persia; her mother had been a nurse. In 1925, lured by the promise of getting rich through maize farming, the family moved to the British colony in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Like other women writers from southern African who did not graduate from high school (such as Olive Schreiner and Nadine Gordimer), Lessing made herself into a self-educated intellectual.
In 1937 she moved to Salisbury, where she worked as a telephone operator for a year. At nineteen, she married Frank Wisdom, and had two children. A few years later, feeling trapped in a persona that she feared would destroy her, she left her family, remaining in Salisbury. Soon she was drawn to the like-minded members of the Left Book Club, a group of Communists "who read everything, and who did not think it remarkable to read." Gottfried Lessing was a central member of the group; shortly after she joined, they married and had a son.
During the postwar years, Lessing became increasingly disillusioned with the Communist movement, which she left altogether in 1954. By 1949, Lessing had moved to London with her young son. That year, she also published her first novel, The Grass Is Singing, and began her career as a professional writer.
In June 1995 she received an Honorary Degree from Harvard University. Also in 1995, she visited South Africa to see her daughter and grandchildren, and to promote her autobiography. It was her first visit since being forcibly removed in 1956 for her political views. Ironically, she is welcomed now as a writer acclaimed for the very topics for which she was banished 40 years ago.
In 2001 she was awarded the Prince of Asturias Prize in Literature, one of Spain's most important distinctions, for her brilliant literary works in defense of freedom and Third World causes. She also received the David Cohen British Literature Prize.
She was on the shortlist for the first Man Booker International Prize in 2005. In 2007 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
