Nory Winslow is a true original. A displaced American girl going to school in England, Nory has varied and marvellous ideas and dreams, the symbolic nature of which seem at once hilarious to adults -- as a Little Prince once observed -- and as rich as the inner life of childhood can ever be. In The Everlasting Story of Nory, Nicholson Baker creates a character fanciful and endearing, funny, sweet and with an edge. Her visions of dentistry and pop-up books, God and insects are a marvellous attempt to recreate the inner life of a magical child -- which, as we all know, is every child.
