This book is a celebration of the Meridian Energy Katherine Mansfield Memorial Fellowship, which since 1970 has allowed one New Zealand writer each year to live for at least four months in Menton on the French Côte d'Azur, and to write in the Katherine Mansfield Memorial Room, in the Villa Isola Bella, where in 1920-1 New Zealand's most famous writer spent some of the happiest and most productive months of her short life.

Twenty-three of the writers who have followed in Mansfield's footsteps received a long-delayed letter from her, and on 6 March 1999 their replies were heard at a standing-room-only celebration in Wellington. These very personal contributions are sensually evocative of the Menton experience and provide absorbing insights into the creative processes of some of our leading writers.
