The Nobel-prize winning novelist Doris Lessing passed away on [November 17] in London at the age of 94.

In this 2003 interview, Bill Moyers spoke with Lessing about what she called her “compulsive” passion for writing, growing up in Africa, the flower children of the 1960s, her time as a communist, the lasting impacts of war and how she handled accusations by her friends that she was “narrow-minded and an old grouch.”
