In the aftermath of World War II, Martha Quest finds herself completely
disillusioned. She is losing faith with the communist movement in Africa,
and her marriage to one of the movement's leaders is disintegrating.
Determined to resist the erosion of her personality, she engages in the
first satisfactory love affair and breaks free, if only momentarily, from
her suffocating unhappiness. Landlocked is the fourth novel of Doris
Lessing's classic Children of Violence sequence of novels, each a
masterpiece in its own right, and collectively an incisive, all
encompassing vision of our world in the twentiethcentury.
