One of the 20th century's great short story writers, Mansfield explored emotional bonds in an intensely visual style of impressionistic details. This collection of her finest work features perceptive tales that reflect Mansfield's own bohemian lifestyle, which involved tempestuous relationships with Bertrand Russell and Virginia Woolf. "Prelude", a reminiscence of her New Zealand girlhood, is included, as well as "The Garden Party", "Bliss", and others.
At the height of her artistic powers, Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923) succumbed to tuberculosis at the age of 34. The New Zealand - born author's popular short stories bear the marked influence of her tempestuous relationships within a bohemian literary circle that included Virginia Woolf, D. H. Lawrence, and Aldous Huxley.
