Going Home Summary

Going Home by Doris Lessing

From the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, a compelling account of her return to the land in which she grew up.

In 1956, some seven years after departed for England, Doris Lessing returned home to Southern Rhodesia. It was a journey that was both personal - a revisiting of a land and people she knew - and, inevitably, political: Southern Rhodesia was now part of the Central African Federation, where the tensions between colonialism and self-determination were at their most deeply felt.

`Going Home' is a book that combines journalism, reportage and memoir, humour, farce and tragedy; a book fired by the love of one of the twentieth century's greatest writers for a country and a continent that she felt compelled to leave.
