Short Story Writer

Kathleen Mansfield Murry (1888-1923) was a short story writer and poet. She was born in New Zealand and moved to England at the age of nineteen. Mansfield made friends with D. H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf and although her literary career was very short (as she sadly died at thirty-four owing to tuberculosis), she is seen as one of the best short story writers of all time. Some of her best-known works were The Garden Party, A Dill Pickle, Mr and Mrs Dove, and The Fly.
