Description
(Finalist for the 2015 Costa Biography Award) Wonderland is part of our cultural heritage—a symbol for all that is beautiful and confusing, a metaphor used by artists, writers, and politicians for 150 years. But beneath the fairy tale lies the complex history of the author and his subject, notes literature professor Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, the Duff Cooper Prize–winning author of Becoming Dickens. Here he tells the stories of Charles Dodgson, the quiet academic, and his second self, Lewis Carroll—storyteller, innovator, and collector of what he called "child-friends"—and of his "dream-child," Alice Liddell, and the fictional alter ego that would never let her grow up.

"Superb.... Toweringly the best of the dozens of books on Carroll which I have read."—Financial Times (London)
