Vita Sackville-West's Very, Very Tiny Novel

"The story Vita Sackville-West wrote for the library of Queen Mary’s Dollhouse is a jeu d’esprit. Vita was not a humorist, nor was she much given to whimsy, but her teasing children’s tale of a boastful, “lively . . . inquisitive spirit,” whose “dark little clubbed head,” like Vita’s, “gave her a boyish, page-like appearance,” is essentially a joke. As such it is unique among Vita’s fiction."
