This is Doris LessingÃ¢ÂÂs AfricaÃ¢ÂÂwhere 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. LessingÃ¢ÂÂs most extraordinary work. It is a brilliant portrait of a world that is vital to all of usÃ¢ÂÂperceived by an artist of the first rank writing with passion and honesty about her native land.
African Stories includes every story Doris Lessing has written about Africa: all of her first collection, This Was the Old ChiefÃ¢ÂÂs Country; the four tales about Africa from Five; the African stories from The Habit of Loving and A Man and Two Women; and four stories featured only in this edition.
African Stories represents some of Doris LessingÃ¢ÂÂs best workÃ¢ÂÂand is an essential book by one of the twentieth centuryÃ¢ÂÂs most important authors.
