Lewis Carroll A Biography

This authoritative, affectionate biography, which was originally published in 1995, draws on access to the family archives and brings together the two sides of this remarkable man to explore the emotional turbulence and self-reproach that lay beneath his apparently placid existence, and gave rise to some of the wildest characters in literature.
