9780007166411: Anna and Mister God

A stunning 30th anniversary edition of the best-selling Mister God This Is Anna, together with the sequels, Anna’s Book, Anna and the Black Knight, with a new preface by Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury.

“I knew her on her own terms, the way she demanded to be known: from the inside first. ‘Most of an angel is in the inside’, and this is the way I learned to know her – my first angel.”

Anna was four years old when Fynn, then only 16 himself, found her wandering round London’s Docklands one foggy night in the 1930s. As she was badly neglected and virtually abandoned by her parents, he took her home to be cared for by his own family.

The impact of this extraordinary child on Fynn, his friends and the people in their neighbourhood was to be immense. Nobody who met Anna could remain the same: this intelligent, lively, precocious chatterbox had an outlook on life which completely undercut adult pretensions and illusions.

Anna’s influence continues today. Anyone dipping into her thought-processes falls under the spell of her luminous innocence, wisdom and intimate relationship with ‘Mister God’. Her artless and transparent conversations with the Almighty speak to the heart and are often recorded using her own unique and colourful spelling.

With humour and insight, Fynn movingly recounts Anna’s short life and abundantly rich philosophy in these three timeless books, bound together in this stunning, 30th Anniversary edition.

Review:

‘Here is a book which is a pearl of great price. It will mean everything. Truth, beauty, and goodness, to those who understand… a heavenly book, rooted in earth.’
The Guardian

‘Do not be deceived by the simplicity: these stories and insights were matured for decades through Fynn’s own thinking, imagining and suffering to give us this superb, intoxicating spirit.’
Professor David F. Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge

About the Author:

The identity of Fynn remains mysterious.
Vernon Sproxton, in his foreword to Mister God, This Is Anna writes ‘He is who he was. He is pretending to be nobody other than himself. But a very real and permanent part of his being is – Anna.’
