This book offers a new introduction to Katherine Mansfield's short stories, focusing on the connection between life and writing in her work. Professor Bennett argues that Mansfield's multiple and unstable identities and identifications are bound up with issues of colonialism, nationality, gender,ansd sexuality, and that they may be said to be embedded with the very texture of her prose.
