|Citation: ||Dooley, Gillian 2001. Review of "The Sweetest Dream" by Doris Lessing. 'Writers’ Radio, Radio Adelaide', broadcast on 27 October 2001.|
|Abstract: ||Doris Lessing turned 82 this year, but she shows no sign of mellowing or
tiring. Her output continues to be prodigious, even for a writer half her age.
Since 1994 she has published no fewer than 6 new books – 2 volumes of
autobiography and 4 novels, and her range of styles is as various as it ever was.
The most recent novels have included a futurist fable (Mara and Dann), a
smaller-scale but not short realist novel (Love, Again), a picaresque sequel to
"The Fifth Child", her modern-day morality tale (Ben in the World), and, most
recently, a huge baggy family saga, "The Sweetest Dream".|
