Lessing wins Nobel Prize in Literature

Lessing wins Nobel Prize in Literature - Yahoo! News: "STOCKHOLM, Sweden - English writer Doris Lessing, who ended her formal schooling at age 13 and went on to write novels that explored relationships between the genders and races, won the 2007 Nobel Prize in literature on Thursday. "

I am still haunted by one short story I read by Doris Lessing where a young white girl meets an African king on the road and he moves out of the way for her to pass. I can't seem to find that story again, but it gave me a great respect for Doris Lessing. Congratulations.
