Description


This major collection contains all of Doris Lessing’s short fiction, other than the stories set in Africa, from the beginning of her career until now. Set in London, Paris, the south of France, the English countryside, these thirty-five stories reflect the themes that have always characterized Lessing’s work: the bedrock realities of marriage and other relationships between men and women; the crisis of the individual whose very psyche is threatened by a society unattuned to its own most dangerous qualities; the fate of women.

About the Author


Doris Lessing was born of British parents in Persia, in 1919, and moved with her family to Southern Rhodesia when she was five years old. She went to England in 1949 and has lived there ever since. She is the author of more than thirty books—novels, stories, reportage, poems, and plays. In 2007, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Praise for Stories…


“Doris Lessing’s artistry is demonstrated over and over in this generous collection.” –Time“Lessing is the great realist writer of our time.” –Diane Johnson, The New York Times Book Review“[Lessing’s] stock of reliable, solid information about life is enormous; her social range…impressively wide; her interests, human, varied, oddly reassuring.” –Margaret Drabble, Saturday Review
