The True State of Affairs is a novella by Diana Wynne Jones.

It concerns a young Englishwoman who, under circumstances that are never described, finds herself in another world. Arrested and imprisoned, she strikes up a surreptitious relationship with a fellow prisoner.

The story was written in the 1960s, but did not appear in print until Everard's Ride in 1995. It was subsequently reprinted in Minor Arcana.

The unnamed setting of the story resembles Dalemark, in much the same way that the setting of "Dragon Reserve, Home Eight" resembles a series of the Related Worlds.
