Publisher's Summary

Doris Lessing reads from her introduction to Ecclesiastes, or The Preacher. Ancient tradition suggests that this world-weary lament is the work of Solomon in old age. Casting its eye over the transient nature of life, the book questions the story for wisdom and the truth, choosing instead to espouse the value of living for the moment.
The introduction is preceded by a reading from the book by Richard Holloway, former Bishop of Edinburgh.

More Doris Lessing please!

Doris Lessing is a truly great writer who deserves more of a presence here on Audible! Perhaps if enough of the say this our voices will be heard
