British writer, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2007, died yesterday at the age of 94.
Lessing, considered one of the most influential writers of the last century, wrote more than 50 novels that ranged from political issues to dabble into science fiction.
At 88, she won the Nobel Prize for Literature, becoming the oldest author to win the Nobel. She was also honored in 2001 with the Prince of Asturias Award.
One of her most notable works was ‘The Golden Notebook’ (1962), which analyzes the female personality and creativity. Lessing’s other books are “The good terrorist’ (1985), ‘The Fifth Child’ (1988), or those who she wrote under the pseudonym Jane Somers, like ‘Good neighbor Diary’ (1983).
