Audible Editor Reviews

Author Katherine Mansfield is well known for her subtle, finely detailed accounts of the joys and sorrows of everyday life, and "Pictures", selected from her short story collection Bliss and Other Stories, displays her characteristic light touch as it follows its protagonist, the impoverished Miss Moss, through a long day in early 20th century London.

Narrator Juliet Stevenson employs her somewhat stern and refined voice to great effect in this performance, skillfully drawing out the melancholic, meditative qualities of this deft story in ways that make it impossible not to sympathize, and empathize, with the characters populating Mansfield’s devastatingly realistic world.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Bliss & Other Stories collection.

One of Katherine Mansfield's finest short stories, Bliss introduces us to Bertha, who experiences a sense of rapture as she reflects on her life. On her walk home one day, she is overwhelmed by a sense of bliss and contentment.

However, her joy later turns to disappointment as she discovers her husband is having an affair with her new friend Pearl.

Katherine Mansfield became well-known for her focus on psychological conflicts and complex characters; and "Bliss" displays these qualities brilliantly, exploring themes of marriage, adultery and duplicity. This set also contains five other short stories by Katherine Mansfield: "Mr Reginald Peacock's Day", "Pictures", "The Little Governess", "Feuille D'Album", and "A Dill Pickle".
