Robert Douglas-Fairhurst illuminates two entangled lives: the Oxford mathematician Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and Alice Liddell, the child for whom he invented the Alice stories. This relationship influenced Carroll's imaginative creation of Wonderland--a sheltered world apart during the stormy transition from the Victorian to the modern era.

A beautifully written book. Initially attracted by the cover I thought I'd give it a go but found it hard to believe there would be much new to say. How wrong I was. Robert Douglas-Fairhurst has created a wonderfully readable history of Carrol and of Alice and of so much more.
