Description - Doris Lessing Stories by Doris Lessing Trust

Included are seminal 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", which 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 an unexpected reversal of intimacy. Here also are two classic novellas, "The Temptation of Jack Orkney" and "The Other Woman", exemplifying Lessing's impressive understanding of human psychology. Rich and various in mood and background - the settings range across England and France - these stories powerfully convey the uncompromising insight, intelligence and vision of one of the most ardently admired writers of our time.
