Picks and Pans Review: The Essential Doris Lessing

UPDATED 10/29/2007 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 10/29/2007 at 01:00 AM EDT

This year's Nobel Prize winner in literature has written more than 40 books. Our picks: • THE GOLDEN NOTEBOOK Her best-known novel, it's beloved by feminists for its forthright descriptions of female psychology and sexuality. • UNDER MY SKIN Her autobiography up to age 30, into which she packed two husbands, three children, jobs, parties and plenty of reading. • MARTHA QUEST Rooted in her own story of trying, and failing, to be a "good" (read: conventional) girl.
