This is an auction for A MAN AND TWO WOMEN: NINETEEN STORIES, by Doris Lessing.

“Nineteen stories in all, which pinpoint and needle the anxieties, collisions, betrayals of emotional experience in disabused terms.”

"Wonderful, incisive, marvellous, exactly right...some of the very best writing now being done in English!" - Harper's

"First rate!" – Newsweek review:

“A man, his wife and their best friend in a triangle of passion and betrayal...the strange and shocking relationship between a brother and sister...the game of seduction played with new rules by a handsome Don Juan and a beautiful and independent woman...a once happily married couple at the shattering crossroads of their life together...These are just some of the forms of love explored by Doris Lessing in a work that strips bare the inmost depths of the human heart and soul.”

From Wikipedia:

"Doris May Lessing CH (born 1919) is a British novelist, poet, playwright, librettist, biographer and short story writer. Lessing was awarded the 2007 Nobel Prize in Literature. In doing so the Swedish Academy described her as 'that epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny.' Lessing was the eleventh woman and the oldest person to ever receive the Nobel Prize in Literature. In 2001, Lessing was awarded the David Cohen Prize for a lifetime's achievement in British Literature. In 2008, The Times ranked her fifth on a list of 'The 50 greatest British writers since 1945'. . . "
