In the realm of the short story, Katherine Mansfield established a highly original style. Undramatic, poetic, and lyrical, her writing is exquisitely subtle in its treatment of human behaviour. When these 14 short stories were published in 1920, she had already effected a transformation in this form of fiction, and her influence has been deeply felt by subsequent writers.

Big fan of Katherine Mansfield but this narrator is hard to listen to, would be better suited to jackanory.
"Mansfield Makes Good Audio"
Her stories really thrive on audio and seem to gain even more life and grace
Really? Silly question - as if that were the destiny of all books
I have always loved the stories of Katherine Mansfield and to hear Miriam Margoyles read them was a great treat. She is one of my very favoutite actors and when I noticed she was the reader of 'Bliss', I just had to have it.
