One of the most important books of the growing feminist movement of the 1950s, The Golden Notebook was brought to the attention of a wider public by the Nobel Prize award to Doris Lessing in 2007.
Author Anna Wulf attempts to overcome writer’s block by writing a comprehensive "golden notebook" that draws together the preoccupations of her life, each of which is examined in a different notebook: sources of her creative inspiration in a black book, communism in a red book, the breakdown of her marriage in a yellow book, and day-to-day emotions and dreams in a blue book. Anna’s struggle to unify the various strands of her life – emotional, political, and professional – amasses into a fascinating encyclopaedia of female experience in the ‘50s.
In this authentic, taboo-breaking novel, Lessing brings the plight of women’s lives from obscurity behind closed doors into broad daylight. The Golden Notebook resonates with the concerns and experiences of a great many women and is a true modern classic, thoroughly deserving of its reputation as a feminist bible. A notoriously long and complex work, it is given a new life by this – its first unabridged recording.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.



" The Golden Notebook is Doris Lessing’s most important work and has left its mark upon the ideas and feelings of a whole generation of women." (Elizabeth Hardwick, New York Times Book Review)

Wunderbare Sprecherin - anspruchsvoller Inhalt

Dies ist ein Buch, das zu hören sich wirklich lohnt. Inhaltlich fesselnd - man bekommt tiefe Einblicke in Anna's/Ella's Seelenleben sowie die polistischen Umstände jener Zeit - ist vor allem der wunderbare Vortrag von Juliet Stevenson der pure Genuss. Ich höre das Buch jetzt zum dritten Mal und entdecke immer wieder Neues.
Höchst empfehlenswert.
