The grande dame of English Literature - some of her most perceptive, most revelatory stories. For more than four decades, Doris Lessing's work has observed the passion and confusion of human relationships, holding a mirror up to ourselves in her unflinching dissection of the everyday.
From the magnificent 'To Room Nineteen', a study of a dry, controlled middle-class marriage "grounded in intelligence", to the shocking 'A Woman On The Roof', where a workman becomes obsessed with a pretty sunbather, this superb collection of stories, written over four decades, from the 1950s to the 1990s, bears stunning witness to Doris Lessing's perspective on the human condition.
