The Grass is Singing - Doris Lessing. Reviewed by Audrey Cole

I enjoyed it very much, she drew the characters brilliantly, the decline of Mary was interesting and very sad, likewise Dick, none of his aspirations or dreams worked, so his decline was equally sad. The scheming of Moses was clever and well thought out, the way he made Mary so dependant on him. The desolation of the farm reminded me of Ireland after the war, I remember the bleakness of it, and the poverty.
