story: A Woman on a Roof
author: Doris Lessing
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.”
