The Story of Alice: Lewis Carroll and The Secret History of Wonderland

Robert Douglas


SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD

This is the secret history of Alices Adventures in Wonderland.

Wonderland is part of our cultural heritage. But beneath the fairy tale lies the complex history of the author and his subject. Charles Dodgson was a quiet academic but his second self, Lewis Carroll, was a storyteller, innovator and avid collector of child-friends. Carrolls imagination was to give Alice Liddell, his dream-child, a fictional alter ego that would never let her grow up.

This is a biography that beautifully unravels the magic of Alice. It is a history of love and loss, innocence and ambiguity. It is the story of one mans need to make a Wonderland in a changing world.
