Scope and Content

Photocopy of an incomplete manuscript draft of an unpublished story by Diana Wynne Jones entitled 'The Whatsis'. The manuscript ends mid-way through chapter IX. According to Laura Cecil, Jones' literary agent, Jones did not finish this manuscript because she began to dislike the story, in particular the increasingly uncomfortable relationship between the two brothers.
