I like how Rosamond Lehmann's stories are about nothing at all, but very significant nothings at all. The one I remember is the one where they take bees out of the roof and the honey is no good. I also liked the one about the red-headed family of daughters, especially the bit in the beginning where she says she prefers it when authors are intractable and, when asked about what their stories are about, say bullishly: "Just some people" -- or are otherwise vague and refuse to be drawn on themes etc.
