Printing Details

First US edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 24 × 16.5cm, 292pp.

Signed directly to the title page by Claire Tomalin.

Pursuing art and adventure across Europe, Katherine Mansfield lived and wrote with the Furies on her heels; but when she died aged only thirty-four she became one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. Sexually ambiguous, craving love yet quarrelsome and capricious, she glittered in the brilliant circles of D. H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf, her beauty and recklessness inspiring admiration, jealousy, rage and devotion. Claire Tomalin's biography brings us nearer than we have ever been to this courageous, greatly gifted, haunted and haunting writer.


Very good condition, with a little light wear to the wrapper, which has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
