In Morris's novel, the narrator, a young girl, tells the story of her childhood in a small town in upstate New York. The town is divided by a paper wall, erected by the town's residents to keep out the "other" - a group of neighboring townsfolk who are not like them. The narrator and her friends learn about the other townsfolk by listening to their conversations through the paper wall. The other townsfolk are strange and dangerous, and the paper wall keeps them away. But one day, the wall is torn down, and the narrator and her friends are forced to confront the other townsfolk.; Remainder; 8vo; $6.00.
