Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031212192X, Hardcover)

Through close readings of Doris Lessing's novels, from "The Grass is Singing" to "The Fifth Child", this book maps many of the literary and cultural negotiations that make Doris Lessing both a maverick and a mainstream novelist. Examining the pull of paternal and maternal biographical and literary identifications in Lessing, Rowe relates them to the tensions between the ordinary and the visionary in her fiction.
