Warm congratulations to Doris Lessing for a much-deserved Nobel Prize!
Brief press release of the Nobel Prize Org. describes her as"that epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny"
Sitting at her doorstep surrounded by journalists, she says: "I've won all the prizes in Europe, every bloody one, so I'm delighted to win them all. It's a royal flush."
