RATING: 4 STARS
1922 (reissued AUGUST 9, 2016); Ecco/HarperCollins
(Review Not on Blog)

I have probably read Mansfield before in high school or university but I cannot remember at this point. At least, the stories in this novel did not spark a connection. Yet, Mansfield's writing feels familiar. I really enjoy the way she brings characters to life and gives the reader a sense of the time and place where these characters live. I read this book over two days picking it up when I had short spurts to read. I would say this is a good book for the nightstand when you need to read but don't have the time to give a novel a chance. I am looking forward to reading more of Mansfield.

An author in THE WEEK magazine also highly recommends the story "At the Bay" in this collection. "This long story, set near [Mansfield's] native Wellington, New Zealand, is wonderfully atmospheric and sensuous, and alive to sensations-- especially those of swimming in the morning sea."
