African Stories : Long considered Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing's best collection of short stories, African Stories - a central book in the work of a truly beloved writer - is now back in print. This beautiful collection is an homage to her twenty-five years spent in Africa and a brilliant portrait of African life.
This is Doris Lessing's Africa - where she lived for twenty-five years and where so much of her interest and concern still resides. Here in these stories, Lessing explores the complexities, the agonies and joys, and the textures of life in Africa.
First published in 1965, and out of print since the 1990s, this collection contains much of Ms. Lessing's most extraordinary work. It is a brilliant portrait of a world that is vital to all of us - perceived by an artist of the first rank writing with passion and honesty about her native land.
