Student Finds New Katherine Mansfield Stories – And Stops The Presses

“The discovery – which also includes previously unknown photographs – was made by Chris Mourant, 23, a PhD student at King’s College London. Although in the university’s archives, the material had been overlooked until he spotted its significance. Learning that the University of Edinburgh was to publish the first complete edition of Mansfield’s fiction, he contacted Dr Gerri Kimber, senior lecturer at the University of Northampton and the edition’s co-editor with Vincent O’Sullivan. They were just about to send the first volume to press.”
