9780007202027: Mister God, This is Anna

Anna was four years old when Fynn, then only 16 himself, found her wandering round London’s Docklands one foggy night in the 1930s. Badly neglected and 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’.

Review:

‘The explosive individuality of Anna is not sentimentally touching but sometimes almost frightening. I hope that a new edition will introduce a new generation to this formidable and astonishing figure.’ Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

From the Back Cover:

Fynn found Anna wandering the streets of East London in the 1930s and, unable to discover where she lived, took her home to live with his mother.

Fynn would spend his evening talking and playing with Anna; they chatted about life, particularly science and mathematics, and Anna would tell him about her conversations with 'Mister God', to whom she poured out all her thoughts and troubles. Anna's innocent but insightful world- view caused Fynn to reassess his own.

'Mister God, this is Anna'-an all-time classic – is the story of Anna's short life and the liberating effect she had on her friend Fynn.

"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."
TREVOR HUDDLESTON, 'Guardian'

"Beautifully written; most moving. The book is superbly produced to offset Papas' brilliant drawings".
COLIN MORRIS
