Katherine Mansfield


Writer from New Zealand who was first published in 1911 with her novel, "In A German Pension." She didn't receive much notice, but in the next five years became an important contributor to European magazines. The daughter of a successful businessman, she was schooled in New Zealand and was sent to London in 1903 to attend Queen's College. Grief stricken by the loss over her brother's death during WW I, she also learned at that time that she had incurable tuberculosis.

In 1910, Mansfield married to give her unborn child a name and left her husband almost immediately, but unfortunately the child was stillborn. In 1912, she met John Middleton Murray, an editor, and they married in 1918.

Mansfield died of tuberculosis on 1/09/1923, Fontainebleau, France. Her most noted book, "The Garden Party" was released in 1922 and two of her books were published after her death.
