The novel's narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocrat employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens' own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence

Det femte barnet by Doris Lessing( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in Swedish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nobelpristagare 2007 Kan man lämna bort sitt barn och kan man älska ett barn som inte vill bli älskat?Harriet och David vet från första ögonkastet att de är skapta för varandra. De gifter sig efter en kort tid och är båda helt inställda på att skapa en idyll. Harriet föder flera barn och deras stora viktorianska hus genljuder av skratt, doftar av mat och hembakat bröd och är fyllt av liv och lyckliga barnröster.Så väntar Harriet deras femte barn. Det är inget lyckligt havandeskap som de fyra tidigare. Istället är det en mörk, ödesdiger kraft som kommer in i familjen när Ben föds. Från det ögonblicket kan allt hända och det som händer innebär oerhörda förändringar för dem alla.Doris Lessing är en författare som ständigt vänder sin monumentala talang mot nya utmaningar. Det femte barnet är inget undantag, den tar upp det goda kontra det onda, om effekten av att ta vad man vill ha och tvingas betala vad det kostar. Romanen beskrivs som ett centralt verk i hennes utgivning."Tydligare än någonsin förenar Doris Lessing sina stilarter till ett svårmodigt, rasande och ironiskt memento över vår mänskliga hybris att vilja ha allt och därtill anse oss ha rätt till det, samtidigt som hon ger drömmarna sitt kärleksfulla erkännande.''
