Mansfield Katherine & Perkins Emily (int

Introduced by Emily Perkins Here in one volume are twenty-three of the finest stories by Katherine Mansfield. Considered one of the finest short-story writers of the twentieth century, Mansfield was from a young age heavily influenced by Anton Chekhov, a master of the form. This new selection, with an introduction by the novelist Emily Perkins, ranges across Mansfield’s oeuvre and shows the New Zealander’s dazzling brilliance – from ‘A Dill Pickle’ and ‘The Escape’ to ‘The Garden-Party’ and ‘The Fly’.
