The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing
Harper Collins 1989

Anna keeps four notebooks: a black notebook for her writing; a red notebook for politics; a yellow notebook which tells stories; and a blue notebook, her diary and a record of breakdown and psychoanalysis. The golden notebook connects each and brings the story full circle. The novel is a wry and perceptive portrait of the intellectual and moral climate of the 1950's and a powerful and revealing account of a woman searching for her own personal and political identity.
Doris Lessing was born in Persia (now Iran).
