Nobel author Doris Lessing dies at 94

LONDON – Doris Lessing emerged from a black cab outside her home in London one day in 2007 and was confronted by a horde of reporters. When told she had won the Nobel Prize, she blinked and retorted “Oh Christ! … I couldn’t care less.” That was typical of the independent – and often irascible – author who died Sunday after a long career that included “The Golden Notebook”.
