Publisher's Summary

'Lottie and Kezia stood on the patch of lawn just inside the gate, all ready for the fray in their coats with brass anchor buttons....' In the realm of the short story, Katherine Mansfield established a highly original style. Undramatic, poetic, and lyrical, her writing is exquisitely subtle in its treatment of human behaviour. When these 14 short stories were published in 1920, she had already effected a transformation in this form of fiction, and her influence has been deeply felt by subsequent writers.

Big fan of Katherine Mansfield but this narrator is hard to listen to, would be better suited to jackanory.

I have always loved the stories of Katherine Mansfield and to hear Miriam Margoyles read them was a great treat. She is one of my very favoutite actors and when I noticed she was the reader of 'Bliss', I just had to have it.
