I have been a fan of Doris Lessing forever. She is a brilliant writer from her African stories to science fiction to old age and terrorism. "Mara and Dann" is an extraordinary book talking of a future that is very likely, about people that get into your heart.

I have been a fan it seems forever of Doris Lessing. She is a brilliant writer from her African stories to science fiction, old age and terrorism. "Mara and Dan" is one of her most extraordinary books describing a future world yet it is our our own world and how we need each other for survival.
