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.
