Bliss & The Garden Party – Katherine Mansfield


Chosen by Rachel

Bliss tells the story of a dinner party where secrets abound. The Garden Party captures the story of an upper-middle class NZ family preparing for a garden party.

✔ “These two short stories were my favourite of all the Katherine Mansfield we read this month. Not only astounding that so much can be said in such a short space, but that important social and moral commentaries are woven amongst the decadent narrative. Stunning imagery, too – I remember these stories vividly.” – Rachel
