Biographical notes:

Katherine Mansfield was born in New Zealand, and also lived in England. During her Bohemian and rather brief life, she made significant contributions to the art of short story writing as a major 20th century writer. Her fiction is characterized by crisp metaphorical prose, a graceful yet inescapable sense of irony, and, above all, a unique and irresistible degree of observation.
