Signed by Lessing and dated 1st November 1981 on half-title. Born in Iran and raised in what is now Zimbabwe, Nobel Prize-winning British novelist Doris Lessing wrote literature and science fiction with a feminist, humanist, postcolonial perspective. Shikasta is the first novel in Lessing's 5-part Canopus in Argos series, an innovative social history of the future, heavily influenced by Sufism.
