Beschreibung

"In a German Pension" is a remarkable collection of short stories, displaying all Katherine Mansfield's skill in the genre. 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. A key figure in the Modernist movement, Katherine Mansfield is most remarkable for perfecting the art of the short story.
