She begins with her 1949 arrival in London as a 30-year-old single mother from Rhodesia who is searching for a place and the means to write freely; Lessing closes in 1962 with the publication of her most famous novel, The Golden Notebook.

Walking in the Shade is essential reading for anyone interested in mid-century British culture. .
