RACHEL AND THE ANGEL AND OTHER STORIES. New York: Greenwillow Books, . Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First U.S. edition. Collects seven stories. "Westall's adolescents are sympathetic characters who understand differences between the worlds of adults and children, and their difficult dealings with parents and teachers often parallel their puzzlement by inscrutable supernatural forces. They command reader sympathy and identification, and their adventures show how closely the concerns of sophisticated young adult fiction and the subtle traditional tale of terror are to one another." - Stefan Dzeimianowicz in Neil Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-387. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#161996).
