As you will have heard by now, Doris Lessing has won the 2007 Nobel Prize in Literature:
“that epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny”.
American literary critic Harold Bloom called the academy’s decision “pure political correctness.”
“Although Ms. Lessing at the beginning of her writing career had a few admirable qualities, I find her work for the past 15 years quite unreadable … fourth-rate science fiction,” Bloom told the AP.
Anyone out there feel like writing an assessment of Lessing’s sf for Vector?
