Summary (From the publisher):

In 1909, the young Katherine Mansfield left London for a quiet Bavarian spa to a await the birth of her child. There she wrote the stories first published in book form in 1911 as In a German Pension.

The stories—thirteen in all—introduce a writer of astonishing gifts, modern in spirit and perceptive far beyond her years. Mansfield’s semi-autobiographical narrator is slyly amused at the smugness, snobbery and indelicacy of her fellow guests at the pension. In such stories as “Germans at Meat,” “The Sister of the Baroness” and “The Modern Soul,” Mansfield created scintillating, richly atmospheric, often funny vignettes of life at a German spa in the early 1900s.
