Summary

Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923) was a prominent modernist writer of short fiction and a close associate of D. H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf.

'The Tiredness of Rosabel' is a beautiful and poignant tale of a milliner who weaves glimpses of inspiration from her day's humdrum experiences into a wistful and romantic dream.

Terrible voice

Don’t buy this. It’s 15 minutes long and the reader has the most weird awful voice I have ever heard. Unlistenable because of the voice , which is sad as I like Katherine Mansfield and it’s probably a good short story.

Drawling Narrator

I thought for $1.48 I could handle the narrator for 15 minutes-- that at such a low price I could overlook the sample audio because after all, it was such a great deal! No. The narrator pulls out the last word of her sentences like taffy, stretching and drawing in sibilant hisses until the word snaps in two and falls to pieces. I couldn't listen past the two minute mark. Though this is a story I would enjoy in print, the audio version is terrible!! Performance should be a negative 5 stars.
