Synopsis

"Mansfield with Monsters is a collection of Mansfield's short stories that were uncovered by Dr Marcus Walker. These stories are as they were originally written - with vampires, aliens, and sea monsters - but never published. A brilliant introduction to Mansfield's work, ideal for those who might otherwise be reluctant to read her stories. Includes seventeen short stories, including 'The Daughters of the Lizard Colonel, 'Mrs Brill', and 'Her First Bite'. The Garden Party is threatened by hordes of giant insects, while Ma Parker's lot in life is improved through the labours of a mad scientist, and the woman at the store works her unholy magic ..." --Publisher.
 

About the Author

Katherine Mansfield was a popular New Zealand short-story writer best known for the stories "The Woman at the Shore," "How Pearl Button Was Kidnapped," "The Doll's House," and her twelve-part short story "Prelude," which was inspired by her happy childhood. Although Mansfield initially had her sights set on becoming a professional cellist, her role as editor of the Queen's College newspaper prompted a change to writing. Mansfield's style of writing revolutionized the form of the short story at the time, in that it depicted ordinary life and left the endings open to interpretation, while also raising uncomfortable questions about society and identity. Mansfield died in 1923 after struggling for many years with tuberculosis.
