Pursuing art and adventure across Europe, Katherine Mansfield lived and wrote with the Furies on her heels; but when she died, aged only 34, she became one of the most influential writers of the 20th-century. Sexually ambiguous, craving love yet quarrelsome and capricious, she glittered in the brilliant circles of D. H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf, her beauty and recklessness inspiring admiration, jealousy, rage and devotion. Claire Tomalin's biography brings us nearer than we have ever been to this courageous, greatly gifted, haunted and haunting writer.
