‘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
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."
