Feuille d'Album (short story)
Feuille d'Album is a 1917 short story by Katherine Mansfield. It was first published in the New Age on 20 September 1917 under the title of An Album Leaf. A revised version later appeared in Bliss and Other Stories.
Ian French, a painter, cannot seem to fall in love with any woman. One evening, he spots a neighbour whom he feels attracted to. He then follows her while she is out shopping on a Thursday, and was talking to her while he had an egg in his hand and then gave her back.
