Woman in Love: Katherine Mansfield's Love Letters

“It’s like being handed this exquisite treasure box that belongs to one of the most remarkable writers ever.” Richard Curtis

Mansfield’s short stories are loved by readers around the world. Her letters also showcase the shining quality of her writing, her powers of observation and her humour. This collection of ‘love letters’ casts its net wide, capturing love in its many forms. There are letters to lovers, but also to family, friends, and fellow creatives, including Virginia Woolf. The letters paint an intimate picture of Mansfield’s relationships and capture her love of nature, art, the details of daily life, and Life itself – always with a capital ‘L’.

Woman in Love: Katherine Mansfield's Love Letters is edited by Nicola Saker (editor of The Katherine Mansfield Cookbook) with a foreword by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a FuneralNotting HillLove ActuallyYesterday) and Scarlett Curtis (Feminists Don’t Wear Pink & Other LiesIt’s Not OK to Feel Blue & Other Lies). Designed by Roger Joyce.
