‘Free Woman: Life Liberation and Doris Lessing’ is a genre-defying memoir in which Lara Feigel experiments with sexual, intellectual and political freedom whilst reading and pursuing Doris Lessing.
Free Woman is essential reading for anyone whose life has been changed by books or has questioned the structures by which they live. Feigel tells Lessing’s own story, veering between admiration and fury at the choices Lessing made. At the same time, she scrutinises motherhood, marriage and sexual relationships with an unusually acute gaze.
“The most intriguing and certainly the bravest work of literary scholarship I have ever read” – Deborah Levy
