    Katherine Mansfield’s In a German Pension is a remarkable collection of short stories, displaying all Mansfield’s skill in the genre.

    Written shortly after Mansfield visited Germany as a young woman, these short stories form a series of satirical sketches of German characters. From a young wife’s preoccupation with her husband’s stomach, to a society lady’s inability to see beyond the latest fashion, Mansfield depicts everyday events and the minute changes of human behaviour in the most exquisite detail. In a German Pension reveals her as a true disciple of Chekhov.
