As well as being a biographical account of her life and an exploration of her writing, her stories, her diaries and letters, this account is also a social history of those times… This meticulously researched account of Finding Katherine Mansfield will entrance you.” Dr Libby Limbrick, University of Auckland, English in Aotearoa “This CD is a triumph! Only someone with a deep knowledge and thorough understanding of Katherine Mansfield could have pulled this off so perfectly. Compulsive listening for both the Katherine Mansfield novice as well as the devoted scholar.” Dr Gerri Kimber, Chairman of the Katherine Mansfield Society “Susannah Fullerton’s research into her subject is impressive, and if her emotionally charged readings from the stories don’t melt your heart, the solo cello music written and played by Andrew Gower definitely will.” Sue Arnold, The Guardian
