A Message from the King

In an e-mail today, sent around 10:15 a.m., EST

Hi Honey,

This is what Dad said about
Doris Lessing winning the Nobel prize for literature: "She was the first feminist author. The winner wasn't [Capt.], but at least it was a woman."

Love, MOM

Ah, it warms my heart. I've read only some short stories and The Fifth Child (which I read too soon after We Need to Taaalk Aboouut Keeeh-vin). Judging from the number of asshat commenters I've read today who disdain her in favor of Saul Bellow and John Updike, we'd all do well to read some more of her books.
