Summary

Katherine Mansfield was a master of the short story. With characters in psychological struggles resulting in a major life shift or revelation, her style influenced contemporary and friend Virginia Woolf as well as modern authors including Alice Munro. These stories were written between 1920 and 1921, while she was ill with tuberculosis. She died in 1923 at the age of 34. 

Fifteen stories are included in this recording: "At the Bay", "The Garden Party", "The Daughters of the Late Colonel", "Mr. and Mrs. Dove", "The Young Girl", "Life of Ma Parker", "Marriage a La Mode", "The Voyage", "Miss Brill", "Her First Ball", "The Singing Lesson", "The Stranger", "Bank Holiday", "An Ideal Family", and "The Lady's Maid".
