"This important new study on Katherine Mansfield, although of interest to the widely-read Mansfield scholar, will also have broad appeal to the non-specialist, offering an excellent introduction -- aided by its chronological ordering -- to Mansfield's life and short story output." -- Gerri Kimber, Associate Lecturer, Open University, UK
