Katherine Mansfield's fame was more of a gradual build-up rather than an overnight sensation. In 1907 she started publishing stories in Australian magazines. In 1911, now back in London, she published In a German Pension and married John Middleton Murry, the editor of a literary magazine. After contracting tuberculoisis in 1917, she wrote and published two more collections which were well-received. Her husband, however, is credited with firmly establishing her reputation as a writer. After she died in 1923, he published the rest of her stories and letters.
