In her 20th year, the death of Miss M's father renders the narrator of Walter de la Mare's 1921 novel, winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, an orphan. It would be a difficult circumstance for any young woman, but particularly so for the miniature Miss M, who, despite her sharp wit, must endure the tendency of her care givers either to dominate her as if she is a small, stupid child ("Midgetina") or regard her as a curious object.
