Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0394742494, Paperback)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.

Includes stories like "To Room Nineteen", in which a woman reacts against the oppression of her banal marriage with dreadful results; "One off the Short List", that traces the surprising conclusion to a seduction gone awry; and "The Habit of Loving", in which a lonely older man who takes a vivacious young wife witnesses a reversal of intimacy.
