The Lonely Doll, Dare Wright, (Houghton Mifflin Company, 1985)

I did not read this as child, but I would have loved to pore over these poignant images. Hooray for reprints!

I think this is a challenging book for modern readers. It documents the complexity of relationships in an empathic and engaging way. This book makes me wonder about the life of its author.
