"In a German Pension" is a remarkable collection of short stories, displaying all Katherine Mansfield's skill in the genre. Written shortly after the author 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, Katherine Mansfield depicts, in exquisite detail, the minute changes of human behavior." In a German Pension "reveals her as a true disciple of Chekhov. A key figure in the Modernist movement, Katherine Mansfield is most remarkable for perfecting the art of the short story.

Autor: Katherine Mansfield
Die Neuseeländerin Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923) hat in ihrem kurzen Leben Weltliteratur geschrieben. "In der deutschen Pension" oder "Die Gartenparty" gehören heute zu den Klassikern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ihre Geschichten zeichnen sich durch messerscharfe Momentaufnahmen, durch bissige Genreskizzen und großes stilistisches Können aus. Zu Recht gilt sie, die sich eher Cechov als den angelsächsischen Erzählern verpflichtet fühlte, als Wegbereiterin der literarischen Moderne.
