STAFF PICK (15% OFF!) - The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing
This always seemed like one of those great books you’re supposed to read. It’s like when I was a kid and we’d have Brussels sprouts for dinner. The frozen kind. First time I had fresh Brussels sprouts, it was a REVELATION. That is what reading this book is like. I was blown away by how brilliant Doris Lessing is. How completely insightful. How elegantly she picks apart the complexities of human nature. How she does it all in a way that is utterly riveting. I couldn’t put it down, couldn’t wait to read everything she had to say about the joys and sorrows and mysteries of being alone, of colliding with desire and love, of living.
