The Afterlives Of Katherine Mansfield

"She inadvertently brought the influence of Chekhov to English modernism....She had vision beyond her own prideful ego....She wrote nearly 100 [stories], the strongest of which challenged and altered much in the nature and form of literary fiction of the modernist period and beyond....So many different lives and afterlives for such a short life."

- Ali Smith writes an excellent piece on Katherine Mansfield
