About this book
Winchester tells the story behind one of the greatest classics in children's literature, "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland", by examining the notorious photo of Alice Liddell as 'The Beggar Maid', which Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) took in 1858. Winchester uses the photo as a launching pad to look at the inspiration behind the book, and at Dodgson's life, also using his private diaries and published writings.
Simon Winchester turns his unrivaled talents to revealing the significance of the intriguing photograph whose subject inspired Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
