This is a fine book of short stories inspired by the New Zealand writer, Katherine Mansfield. Each story is a spin-off from one of Mansfield's, although original in its own right. The diversity of the stories is its fascination, and of course those familiar with Katherine Mansfield's stories will be interested especially in the way a story can inspire another, and so on. The hardback edition is a very nice production with beautiful endpapers. It has a weighty feel in the hand which seems appropriate for the rather special 'dual' authorship.
