This major collection contains all of Doris Lessing's short fiction, other than the stories set in Africa, from the beginning of her career until now. Set in London, Paris, the south of France, the English countryside, these thirty-five stories reflect the themes that have always characterized Lessing's work: the bedrock realities of marriage and other relationships between men and women; the crisis of the individual whose very psyche is threatened by a society unattuned to its own most dangerous qualities; the fate of women.

Garner is a natural storyteller.' James Wood, New Yorker This handsome edition of Helen Garner's collected short fiction celebrates the seventy-fifth birthday of one of Australia's most loved authors. These storiesthat delve into the complexities of love and longing, of the pain, darkness and joy of lifeare all told with her characteristic sharpness of observation, honesty and humour. Each one a perfect piece, together they showcase Garner's mastery of the form. Helen Garner writes novels, stories, screenplays and works of non-fiction. In 2006 she received the inaugural Melbourne Prize for Literature, and in 2016 she won the prestigious WindhamCampbell Literature Prize for non-fiction. Garner won the NSW Premier's Literary Award for Fiction for Postcards from Surfers , and the Victorian and Queensland Premiers' Awards, as well as the Barbara Jefferis Award, for her novel The Spare Room . Everywhere I Look won the 2017 Indie Book Award for Non Fiction. Garner's stories share characteristics of the postcard: they flash before us carefully recorded images that remind us of harsher realities not pictured. And like postcards they are economically written, a bit of conversation is transcribed, a memory recalled, an event noted, scenes pass as if viewed from a trainmomentarily, distinct and tantalising in their beauty.' New York Times A perfect introduction for first-timers who have not yet experienced the pleasures of Garner's writing.' Sydney Morning Herald Stories and True Stories are handsome companion volumes deservedly celebrating Helen Garner, our greatest contemporary practitioner of observation, self-interrogation and compassion. Everything she writes, in her candid, graceful prose, rings true, enlightens, stays.' Joan London, Sydney Morning Herald 's Year in Reading Published in beautiful editions to celebrate life given shape in words.' Drusilla Modjeska, Sydney Morning Herald 's Year in Reading Both of these books are concerned with moments of heartbreak and of hope, with loneliness and love, and with great cruelties, and the things that drive people to them. They are animated by a desire to understand what seems unfathomable, and to pay attention to the small pleasures of the everyday. Garner's precise descriptions, her interest in minute shifts of emotion, and the ways in which we reveal ourselves to others are always at work in these books, and make them a real joy to read.' Age As I leaf through the volumes, having just re-read both of them, I am still brought up short by another revelatory insight of the everydayI could go on and on, but I am out of words. Many happy returns Helen Garner!' Adelaide Advertiser Her prose is wiry, stark, precise, but to find her equal for the tone of generous humanity one has to call up writers like Isaac Babel and Anton Chekhov.' Wall Street Journal

Il existe un monde o la ralit se mle aux cauchemars, o le mal cohabite avec les forces du bien et o rien n'est compltement blanc ou noir. Cet univers, Barnett Chevin vous y emmne, aux travers de chemins tortueux que la raison vous pousserait viter. Plongez en plein cur des Short stories, des histoires courtes o vos nerfs seront mis rude preuve, o vos nuits prendront de nouvelles teintes, des teintes issues des tnbres et de la peur. Partagez, si vous l'osez, les secrets et les mystres qui entourent ce premier volume des Short stories , en priant pour que vous n'y laissiez pas plus que quelques nuits d'insomnie... Premier tome d'une intgrale, Short Stories vous emmnera dans un univers de tnbres, de peurs et de mystres. EXTRAIT Lorsqu'il s'veilla ce matin-l, Jack sut qu'il parcourait le chemin qui le conduisait vers une nouvelle vie et qu'il n'y avait pas homme plus heureux que celui qui rentrait dans le pays qui l'avait vu natre. Il tait loin ce temps o il dessinait des femmes nues sur la clbre butte de Montmartre Paris, tout comme celui o il pchait avec son pre sur les lacs gels de Chippewa Falls. Il en avait parcouru des ocans pour arriver jusqu'en Europe. Il en avait essuy des temptes et des affronts dans cette existence de misre. Il acceptait toutefois cette vie sans la moindre colre. Il pensait qu'elle tait un don, que chaque jour comptait et qu'il n'tait pas malheureux tant qu'il possdait de l'air pour ses poumons et des feuilles pour dessiner. Lorsqu'il ouvrit les yeux et qu'il interrompit une nuit sans cauchemars, il constata que les tnbres avaient pris possession de la cabine G16. Il se leva pniblement, ttonnant au hasard pour trouver son chemin. Le navire tait anormalement silencieux. Les odeurs de graillon et d'huile rance avaient disparu. Ses sens s'taient sans doute habitus aux parfums touffants qui rgnaient d'habitude ici. Le trajet tait difficile, mais la lumire de l'espoir brillait au bout du tunnel et cette lumire, il en jouirait jusqu' la lie. Avant son dpart, beaucoup de gens l'avaient prvenu que les croisires en troisime classe taient pres, mais lui avait dj voyag dans les soutes d'un cargo et il ne connaissait rien de plus dantesque que cette exprience. Ici, il pouvait manger sa faim et esprer. PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Barnett Chevin est aussi un des parrains du renouveau des Otherlands, en juillet 2014. N Reims, il y mne une carrire dans la logistique, tout en crivant des nouvelles sur son temps libre. On le retrouve dans de nombreux livres chez Otherlands, mais aussi chez d'autres diteurs.
