In a German Pension
Katherine MansfieldISBN: 1843910411;
Book Description In a German Pension is a remarkable collection of short stories, displaying all Katherine Mansfield’s skill in the genre. Foreword by Linda Grant. Written shortly after the author visited Germany as a young woman, these short stories form a series of satirical sketches of German characters. From a young wife’s preoccupation with her husband’s stomach, to a society lady’s inability to see beyond the latest fashion, Katherine Mansfield depicts, in exquisite detail, the minute changes of human behavior. In a German Pension reveals her as a true disciple of Chekhov.
