Miss M., a pretty and diminutive young woman with a passion for shells, fossils, flints, butterflies and stuffed animals, struggles to deal with her isolation from the rest of society due to her size. Forced to make her own way in the world after the death of her father, she finds herself treated as little more than an entertaining curiosity.

An elegiac, misanthropic, sometimes perverse study of isolation, de la Mare’s prize-winning classic is a dark and teasing riddle that seduces by its gentle charm and elegant prose.
