The Butlers note..

The fifteen stories collected in this volume demonstrate the genius of a woman who, in her short life, was compared to Chekhov. There are not tales of violent incident or dexterous plot. They are sensitive revelations of human behaviour in quite ordinary situations. The men, women and – especially – the children whom Katherine Mansfield portrays in such delicate pastels are involved in no sensational episodes, yet they are vividly true to life. This volume went through five editions when it was originally published in 1922, and it is the first book of Katherine Mansfield’s to appear in the Penguin list.
