This piece surveys Lessing’s career, including descriptions of how this writer, moving through very different genres, including both traditional realism and science fiction, finds ways to warn and chastise her readers for dozing off while driving right off the cliff of political mayhem and ecological disaster. The books discussed in some depth are: Documents Relating to the Sentimental Agents in the Volyen Empire; The Good Terrorist; Mara and Dann: An Adventure; and The Story of General Dann and Mara’s Daughter, Griot and the Snow Dog. Lessing is a Jeremiah, announcing oncoming destruction in these often strange but always compelling novels.
