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.

African Stories includes every story Doris Lessing has written about Africa: all of her first collection, This Was the Old Chief’s 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 Lessing’s best work—and is an essential book by one of the twentieth century’s most important authors.
