5.0 out of 5 stars authoritative biography, 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want a life written with the rubbish left out; this is it; you get Katherine Mansfield in all her complexity.
Claire Tomalin gives you a sense of the real person and the real context of her times. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars properly researched piece of work, 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At last the complicated subject of mental illness and the drugs used in treatment, looked at in depth, the facts arrived at and displayed without sensationalism or exaggeration. This book should be required reading for medics, and anyone contemplating 'treatment'
It could save your life.

3.0 out of 5 stars size, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Too small, I should've read the description, just assumed it was 'bucket sized!'

My own fault for shopping carelessly, but product could have been better described as"small compost bucket"

3.0 out of 5 stars language isn't everything, 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
started off v interesting, descriptions of polish life and character and the transition to life in Canada.

by the time I got to the third quarter of the book and had the same thing about words not being transferrable between cultures for the nth time, got bored with the self obsessed whining tone. Could hardly finish it.
