Description

For seven years Charles Dodgson, a painfully shy Oxford don, and Alice Liddell, the fascinating little girl who was the daughter of the dean of Christ Church, had a strange, intense relationship. Then suddenly, when she was eleven, Alice's family shut Dodgson out. The pages from Dodgson's diary that may have explained the rift have disappeared. What remains are the stories he told her, transformed into the brilliant, revolutionary classics, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, and the pioneering photographs in which he captured her fleeting childhood. In a triumphant work of imagination, Katie Roiphe Illuminates a luxuriously textured corner of Victorian society, with its affluence, social power-plays and politics, and the mysterious, difficult relationship Dodgson had with Alice, her family - and with himself. STILL SHE HAUNTS ME is an unforgettable novel about a singular, troubled man, from one of this century's most provocative young writers.show more
