A landmark of twentieth-century literature, The Grass is Singing is Doris Lessing’s classic first novel, brought with her when she came to England from Southern Rhodesia in 1950.

Set in Rhodesia, it tells the story of Dick Turner, a failed white farmer and his wife, Mary, a town girl who hates the bush. Trapped by poverty, sapped by the heat of their tiny brick and iron house, Mary, lonely and frightened, turns to Moses, the black cook, for kindness and under­standing.

A masterpiece of realism, The Grass is Singing is a superb evocation of Africa’s majestic beauty, an intense psycho­logical portrait of lives in confusion and a passionate exploration of the ideology of white supremacy.

DORIS LESSING, Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2007, was one of the most celebrated and distinguished writers of recent decades. A Companion of Honour and a Companion of Literature, she has been awarded the David Cohen Memorial Prize for British Literature, Spain’s Prince of Asturias Prize, the International Catalunya Award and the S.T. Dupont Golden PEN Award for a Lifetime’s Distinguished Service to Literature. She died in London 2013.
