Lakeview Book Club: The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing
Chosen by TIME magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels since 1923, The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing, is described by The Oxford Companion to English Literature as "inner space fiction," which explores mental and societal breakdown during the 1950s. It is an early and strong work of feminist thought in compelling novel form. The intimate, contentious conversations between the main character and her past loves and current friendships are mesmerizing.
