MTI Acquires Rights to Daddy Long Legs

According to John Caird, “I first read Jean Webster’s novel some fifteen years ago and was immediately charmed by its wit, heart and intelligence. I was also surprised that a novel of such extraordinary sensitivity and economy of structure was not much better known, was not regarded, indeed, as a great American classic.
