"Walking in the Shade: Volume 2 of My Autobiography, 1949-1962", starts with Doris Lessing moving to England. Lessing wrote many books and she said it's annoying when her readers only remember 1 or 2 of her books. After having lived through 2 wars and a bombing, Lessing mentions how she's surprised that more people in society aren't crazy, similar to the craziness of all that's transpired in the world.
