Title:Dear Miss Mansfield - A Tribute to Kathleen Mansfield Beauchamp
Gathers a novella and thirteen stories inspired by the New Zealand author, Katherine Mansfield. This book contains many hallmarks of Witi Ihimaera at his finest. The vision haunts the young Mahaki in teh novella 'Maata'. It sets him on a relentless quest to discover a fascinating literary mystery, as fascinating as the woman who lies at the very heart of it - the enigmatic Katherine Mansfield. But the mystery only begins with 'Maata', for in the thirteen stories that follow, Ihimaera tests the reader by offering variations on Mansfield stories and themes. The variations are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Most of them are Maori, but some are European. Some are like mirror reflections of Mansfield, but others are only pieces of the mirror. They challenge our knowledge of Mansfield - and our expectations of Ihimaera.
