A charming first Impression of the first edition in just about Fine condition with very slightly yellowed pages edges as is common with this title, in like, lightly rubbed dust-wrapper. Dedicated to fellow author Greg Gatenby and SIGNED by author and Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing directly on the title page. From Gatenby's library with his signature on the fly leaf. An attractive association.
Nobel Prize Winner Doris Lessing's attempt to explain "why human beings continue to make the same mistakes. This original and important work of Lessing underlines the necessity to retain an independent frame of mind, to fight received opinion and to resist the general drift into apathy". (from the dustjacket).
