520    "In the summer of 1858, in a garden behind Christ Church 
       in Oxford, Charles Dodgson--better known by his pseudonym 
       Lewis Carroll--dressed the six-year-old Alice Liddell in 
       ragamuffin's clothes, and then snapped the camera's 
       shutter. In The Alice Behind Wonderland, Simon Winchester 
       uses the famous photograph of Alice as the launching pad 
       for an appreciative energetic and penetrating look at the 
       inspiration behind, and the making of, one of the greatest
       classics of children's literature. Indeed, Winchester 
       shows that Dodgson's love of photography deeply influenced
       his view of the world, helping to transform this shy and 
       half-deaf mathematician into one of the world's best-loved
       observers of childhood. Much like the fictional Alice's 
       world, as the photograph is subject to closer examination,
       'Alice Liddell as The Beggar Maid' becomes curiouser and 
       curiouser, capturing a moment during a golden afternoon 
       that would endure forever. 'Alice Liddell as The Beggar 
       Maid' was, in short, the muse that would inspire the 
       creation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Deftly 
       engaging with Dogson's published writings, private diaries,
       and photography, Winchester weaves together the poignant, 
       turbulent, and entirely fascinating story behind Lewis 
       Carroll and the making of his Alice. Acclaim for Simon 
       Winchester "An exceptionally engaging guideat home 
       everywhere, ready for anything, full of gusto and 
       seemingly omnivorous curiosity." --Pico Iyer, The New York
       Times Book Review "A master at telling a complex story 
       compellingly and lucidly." --USA Today "Extraordinarily 
       graceful." --Time "Winchester is an exquisite writer and a
       deft anecdoteur." --Christopher Buckley "A lyrical writer 
       and an indefatigable researcher." --Newsweek"--|cProvided
