“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 with a foreword by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually, Yesterday) and Scarlett Curtis (Feminists Don’t Wear Pink & Other Lies, It’s Not OK to Feel Blue & Other Lies). Designed by Roger Joyce.
