About the Author

Doris Lessing is widely recognized as one of the greatest writers of the second half of the twentieth century.


'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 Times
