'The stories in "To Room Nineteen" are part of the intellectual apparatus of anybody alive in England in the Fifties. I can't begin to evaluate some of them objectively; "The Habit of Loving" and the dazzlingly cynical "One Off The Shortlist" shaped the way I, for one, perceived the world.' Angela Carter, Guardian 'A major collection - rich, perceptive and cruelly honest. For Doris Lessing, private lives, private sins and private blisses are aspects of history, so that even in short stories, she is a chronicler of her time and its conscience too.' Lorna Sage, Observer 'On sex, Doris Lessing has few equals in understanding not only desire, but the rest - boredom, disappointment, erotic fury. On every subject there is a selfless, composed quality about her writing, a special combination of indignation and compassion.' Diane Johnson, New York TimesReseña del editor:
From the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, a collection of some of her finest short stories.
For more than four decades, Doris Lessing’s work has observed the passion and confusion of human relations, holding a mirror up to our selves 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.
