The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing
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.
