The Story of General Dann and Mara's Daughter, Griot and the Snow Dog

by Doris Lessing
£9.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (2006)

The Story of General Dann and Mara In a prophetic vision of a world transformed by climate change, Doris Lessing evokes again the frozen wastes and sun-seared deserts of her glitteringly brilliant novel Mara and Dann.
 
Through the snow-covered northern wilderness of this world travels Dann, now grown up and a general, a man on a quest for knowleddge who is only saved from the depths of despair by his trusty snow dog.
 
We also meet Mara's daughter, and Griot with the green eyes, a child-soldier who, in this strange and captivating adventure, discovers the meaning of love and the ability to tell stories through song.
 
But this compelling future fable may explain as much about the world we live in now as it does of the catastrophes that await us...

"A visionary novel from one of the most distinguished writers of the past 60 years."
