Inside this Book – A short “society novel” written by Miss Daisy Ashford at the age of nine. The notebook containing the novel was rediscovered by her in adult life and sent by a friend to Frank Swinnerton, the English novelist, critic, editor and essayist. Published in 1919 by Chatto and Windus, with its original misspellings and an arch introduction by “Peter Pan” author J. M. Barrie, it was an immediate bestseller. Its child’s view of high society (dukes and earls having ‘levies’ and residing in the ‘Crystall Pallace’) and its heavily romantic plot make it an engaging and enduring popular work.
Inside this book –The Young Visiters or Mr. Salteena’s Plan PDF Book by James M Barrie – This is really pretty hilarious, but I don’t think, contrary to some shelving I see, that it would be very interesting for children. It is BY a child, but clearly modeled on adult conversation and novels. That these were not entirely understood by the author is a gap from which much of the entertainment arises. We have characters who were “sinister” or born “on the wrong side of the blanket” and little Daisy knew that meant a fellow was “not quite a gentleman”. She apparently missed entirely the fact that nice girls don’t go stay alone with unmarried men (one, and then another; poor Ethel really gets handed off like an unwanted pet). The social interactions and dialogue are mostly quite implausible, especially for rigidly stratified and uptight English people. “My life will be sour grapes and ashes without you!” exclaims a rejected suitor. His love object promises to “think of you in a warm manner” to which he responds, “Half a loaf is better than none.” He is very sad at the wedding but cheers up when he sees all the fancy desserts.
