    JMM was such a terrible cad and a bounder – but we can’t help who we fall in love with, can we? P.S Uncommon Arrangements is such a brilliant book, like a literary soap opera.

    The cartoon is brilliant! Would you allow us to post it on the Katherine Mansfield Society website in our resources section? And also perhaps in our next newsletter out in April? Thank you! Our members would love this!

    I agree with Gerri Kimber that this is a terrific illustration of Katherine Mansfield’s brief life. You must have done some research to know the facts or did you garner it all from reading “Uncommon Arrangements,” a fabulous book.
    There’s only one thing I would correct and that is that KM was running up the staircase not down when she hemorrhaged.
    May I put your KM illustrated bio on my website?

    I just published a book entitled “In Pursuit . . . the Katherine Mansfield Story Retold” and your cartoon is a delight for someone who spent years researching KM’s life and John Murry’s and Ida’s and how you managed to put it all in a nutshell!

    Thanks. You are one talented lady or guy. KM would have liked this too.

    all my best,

    Joanna FitzPatrick
