IN THIS EVOCATIVE NOVEL, Janice Kulyk Keefer beautifully imagines Katherine Mansfield’s brief but brilliant life through the desires and the passions of her readers.
In 1986, shortly before the centenary of Mansfield’s birth, Monty, a disillusioned New Zealand scholar, impulsively steals a letter intended for his writer-father. Intrigued by the letter’s offer of new Mansfield material, Monty is inspired to try to redeem his failed career. Arcing gracefully from New Zealand to Europe to Chicago and finally to Windsor, Ontario,Thieves is at once a brilliant mystery, an absorbing love story and a haunting study of what makes us whole.
