From the book cover:
GOING HOME is a brilliant writer's account of a journey back to the land in which she grew up and in which so much of her emotions and her concern are still invested. Doris Lessing's knowledge of Africa goes back to her childhood in Southern Rhodesia, and her love of Africa is as strong as her hatred of the "white supremacy" rule that has haunted its past. GOING HOME reflects both the love and the hate, for it is not a report or a tract but a gifted novelist's experience of the people - black and white - who have shaped Africa's past and will create its future.
Includes "Eleven Years Later," an afterword.
