A group of squatters rebel against Mrs Thatcher and erupt into violence in this politicised novel from the author of The Golden Notebook. In a London squat a band of bourgeois revolutionaries are united by a loathing of the waste and cruelty they see around them. These maladjusted malcontents try desperately to become involved in terrorist activities far beyond their level of competence. Only Alice seems capable of organising anything. Motherly, practical and determined, she is also easily exploited by the group and ideal fodder for a more dangerous and potent cause. Eventually their nave radical fantasies turn into a chaos of real destruction, but the aftermath is not as exciting as they had hoped. Nonetheless, while they may not have changed the world, their lives will never be the same again

In The Good Terrorist we are in the world of the subsidized sub-culture of the Marxist groupuscules of contemporary BritainLessing has a wit, an indignation and a narrative agility which leave few left-wing sacred cows unscathedhugely enjoyable. Sunday Times Doris Lessing writes about the parts other novelists cannot reach. This is a totally absorbing, subtly observed, complicated and stimulating novel. Observer The Good Terrorist is a work of acute intelligence, incisive and compellingit shows Doris Lessing at her mature best. Listener Praise for Doris Lessing: Doris Lessing has changed the way we think about the world. Blake Morrison Thank goodness for Doris Lessing. While the rest of us flounder about noisily in the muddy waters of life, she never fails to expose with startling clarity the essential folly of our dreams and good intentions. Kate Chisholm, Evening Standard Shes up there in the pantheon with Balzac and George Eliot. Were lucky shes still writing. Lisa Appignanesi, Independent
