Famous for her first novel "The Young Visiters", written when she was 9 years old. The manuscript was in a red- covered exercise book and was full of spelling mistakes. Each chapter was also written as a single paragraph. It would be 25 years before the manuscript was rediscovered and eventually published in its original format. The book was reprinted 18 times in its first year and went on to be a stage play, a musical, and more recently a TV film. The original manuscript is held in the Berg Collection of the New York Public Library.
