Words from Doris Lessing
It is so nice and warm to stay at home when the weather is cold. Today I read the PARIS REVIEW and I met Doris Lessing:
"I think a writer’s job is to provoke questions. I like to think that if someone’s read a book of mine, they’ve had—I don’t know what—the literary equivalent of a shower. Something that would start them thinking in a slightly different way perhaps. That’s what I think writers are for. This is what our function is. We spend all our time thinking about how things work, why things happen, which means that we are more sensitive to what’s going on."
