The granddaughter of Charles Darwin, Gwen Raverat was famed for her wood-engravings. This masterpiece of comic writing brings to life her eccentric aunts and uncles with snapshots of an extremely individual family. Also a great social memoir, it describes life in the late 19th century, growing up amid the fads and fetishes of academic and Victorian England.
