The Garden Party and Other Stories: Penguin Classics Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Brought to you by Penguin.
This Penguin Classic is performed by Bonnie Wright, best known for her role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Lorna Sage .
Innovative, startlingly perceptive and aglow with colour, these fifteen stories were written towards the end of Katherine Mansfield's tragically short life. Many are set in the author's native New Zealand, others in England and the French Riviera. All are revelations of the unspoken, half-understood emotions that make up everyday experience - from the blackly comic 'The Daughters of the Late Colonel', and the short, sharp sketch 'Miss Brill', in which a lonely woman's precarious sense of self is brutally destroyed, to the vivid impressionistic evocation of family life in 'At the Bay'. 'All that I write,' Mansfield said, 'all that I am - is on the borders of the sea. It is a kind of playing.'

The stories are really good though, so I'd recommend the paperback.
