Like the author's "Canopus in Argos" novels, this graphic novel is an exercise in speculative imagination. It marks a venture into new creative territory for Lessing, and is illustrated by the young British artist Daniel Vallely.From the Back Cover:
I AM SPACER JOE MAGNIFICO SIMPATICO
The irresistible power of a young man's faith in himself brings the sublime Francesca Bird to his aid. Together they play the game, hoping to rise far, far above the squalor where Joe began… Hoping for the whole squalid world to rise. Instead, at the throw of the dice…
Doris Lessing's compelling fantasy of a raw, urban hell, revealed by the dazzling and sinister illustrations, is a revolutionary event in the world of graphic novels. The powerful vision of Britain's most highly acclaimed novelist is brought vividly to life. 'Playing the Game' is a unique visual experience – and a profoundly moving story of love in a soulless world.
"Doris Lessing is the best women novelist we have"
"Doris Lessing writes about parts other novelists can not reach"
