story: A Woman on a Roof

author: Doris Lessing

year: 1963

where: home, with the new kitten on the table in front of me

note: the cruelty of a woman’s indifference to men…particularly the kind who bark at her. 1960s or…and…today!

a line: “His sun-heated face was screwed into a rage as he whistled again and again, trying to make her look up.”
