The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing
Question: In Doris Lessing's novel, The Golden Notebook, writer Anna Wulf suffers from writer's block. She claims that world events have overwhelmed her until she feels that her words are an insignificant weapon against the injustices and tyrannies of the present day. How do you feel that this sort of writer's block may have affected writers - and novelists in particular - after the terrorist attacks on 9/11?
