Take two: Five, Doris Lessing

For a full review, see my Patreon

This paperback has “50c” written in pencil inside on the first page along with “Lit” so it was bought second-hand a long time ago, probably at the same time as ‘Night and Day’ by Virginia Woolf (which I reviewed recently). On the back cover is a “G and G” sticker with “5.95” printed on it, which probably means it was distributed by Gordon and Gotch. So all the evidence points to me buying this book around 30 years ago and never reading it until now. In short I don’t remember when it came to be in my collection. While the novel first came out in 1953, this volume was made in 1980, the first edition of the Granada paperback appearing on the market in 1969.
