>M Is For Mansfield; M Is For Mailbox

Posted on

My former co-worker (and favorite Kiwi bookworm!) Willie went to New Zealand for his vacation and brought back this novel about Katherine Mansfield for me. It arrived today, and looks wonderful.
Mansfield by C.K. Stead covers 3 significant years in Katherine Mansfield’s life: World War I was being fought, her brother was killed, she was in the beginning stages of the disease that would claim her life in 1923 when she was only 34, she was surrounded by most of the legendary literary figures of that time and she was on the precipice of discovering how she really wanted to write short stories. I’m a huge fan of her work, so I can’t wait to dig into this novel.
