The Sweetest Dream

by Lessing, Doris

PerfectBound e-book extra: "What Has Been, Can Be Again" a speech by the authorIt's the morning of the Sixties and it's suppertime at Freedom Hall, the most welcoming household in North London. Frances Lennox stands at her stove, bringing another feast to readiness before ladling it out to the motley, youthful crew assembled around her hospitable table-her two sons and their friends, girlfriends, ex-friends and new friends fresh off the street. Everything is up for grabs, everything is being changed and challenged. And here in this kitchen, the nutritious tolerance can be sniffed even above the simmering stew.
