‘A landmark, bringing together a lifetime’s work on Lewis Carroll by writer and mathematician Martin Gardner. He dazzles on Carroll’s puzzles and games of logic and entertains on everything from Alice’s influence on the Beat poet Jack Kerouac to how mercury in hat linings turned hatters mad…it is unsurpassed’ – Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times
‘The indispensable guide to a classic of English literature…no one who has ever wondered about the meaning of ‘Jabberwocky’ should fail to include on their Christmas list’ – Robert McCrum, Observer
I have this older version as well: it was Dad’s.
