It's Official: Doris Lessing Really Is Our Fave Bitch Of The Day


Today, the press greeted Golden Notebook author Doris Lessing as she arrived at her home in a taxi. In the clip above, they tell her she was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature, and her response is, “Oh Christ. I couldn’t care less.” She’s the saltiest! What’s not seen in the clip is that reporters then tried to elicit a more printable quote from Lessing, and when one of them reminded her about the $1.5 million cash prize she said, “I’m already thinking about all the people who are going to send me begging letters — I can see them lining up now.”
