If you think this is too old a book to read today, you are mistaken. The story telling is superb, the content profound and the nuanced internal experience of women still resounding, clear as a bell. This is Mad Men for women.

Never have I read a novel that explores the nature of relationships between men and women with such an astute straightforwardness. Doris Lessing's "The Golden Notebook" is a masterpiece because upon a first read it will undoubtedly change each reader, although its brilliance demands multiple readings; it is a masterpiece because it's a complete portrait of a woman of depth (main character Anna Wolf), and it is a masterpiece because it reveals, through Anna’s story, the sum of our knowing that we live hard in our present moments, entrenched—heels dug in—but life will always continue to fly forward, uprooting and changing us into someone new. Sometimes we forget there's always another corner to round until that final corner. "The Golden Notebook" is a must-read.
