A landmark BBC collection of dramatisations and readings of the works of the great Katherine Mansfield.

Katherine Mansfield is remembered as one of the great modernist short-story writers, who managed to pack a huge amount of creative work into her 34 years before she died of TB in 1923. This impressive collection includes brand-new full-cast BBC dramatisations of 'Bliss', 'Something Childish but Very Natural', 'Marriage a la Mode', 'Daughters of the Late Colonel', 'The Garden Party', 'Life of Ma Parker and Her First Ball', plus many more readings brought to life by a wealth of narrators.

Also included is a brand-new play about the last days of Katherine's life, a drama about her friendship with Virginia Woolf and some of the turbulent correspondence between the writer and her husband, John Middleton Murray.
