520    "Following his acclaimed life of Dickens, Robert Douglas-
       Fairhurst illuminates the tangled history of two lives and
       two books. Drawing on numerous unpublished sources, he 
       examines in detail the peculiar friendship between the 
       Oxford mathematician Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and 
       Alice Liddell, the child for whom he invented the Alice 
       stories, and analyzes how this relationship stirred 
       Carroll's imagination and influenced the creation of 
       Wonderland. It also explains why Alice in Wonderland 
       (1865) and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass (1871), 
       took on an unstoppable cultural momentum in the Victorian 
       era and why, a century and a half later, they continue to 
       enthrall and delight readers of all ages. The Story of 
       Alice reveals Carroll as both an innovator and a stodgy 
       traditionalist, entrenched in habits and routines. He had 
       a keen double interest in keeping things moving and 
       keeping them just as they are. (In Looking-Glass Land, 
       Alice must run faster and faster just to stay in one 
       place.) Tracing the development of the Alice books from 
       their inception in 1862 to Liddell's death in 1934, 
       Douglas-Fairhurst also provides a keyhole through which to
       observe a larger, shifting cultural landscape: the birth 
       of photography, changing definitions of childhood, murky 
       questions about sex and sexuality, and the relationship 
       between Carroll's books and other works of Victorian 
       literature. In the stormy transition from the Victorian to
       the modern era, Douglas-Fairhurst shows, Wonderland became
       a sheltered world apart, where the line between the actual
       and the possible was continually blurred."--Publisher's 
       Web site.
