The Story of General Dann and Mara's Daughter, Griot and the Snow Dogby Doris May Lessing
Synopses & Reviews
Dann is grown up now, hunting for knowledge and despondent over the inadequacies of his civilization. With his trusted companions — Mara's daughter, his hope for the future; the abandoned child-soldier Griot, who discovers the meaning of love and the ability to sing stories; and the snow dog, a faithful friend who brings him back from the depths of despair — Dann embarks on a strange and captivating adventure in a suddenly colder, more watery climate in the north.
"Lessing's prose is straightforward, uncomplicated and clear. Her characters are complex and vivid — not least the great snow dog Ruff." Providence Journal
"The odd thing about calling this speculative fiction is that the dilemma Lessing describes has happened over and again throughout time. Imagining how we will begin again is a much more potent act of creative will — and exactly what Doris Lessing has accomplished with this strange and important book." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
