In The Story of Alice: Lewis Carroll and the Secret History of Wonderland , Robert Douglas-Fairhurst does quite a bit of academic sleuthing in order to piece together the mysterious and largely unknown life of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who was known to the literary world as Lewis Carroll. In addition, Douglas-Fairhurst solidly establishes Carroll in the Victorian era and provides a context under which Dodgson became Lewis Carroll and [End Page ] conceived of both Alice and Wonderland. Douglas-Fairhurst portrays Carroll as possessing a strange mix of nonsensical whimsy and calculated, almost obsessive, order. It is this controlled nonsense that has become so endearing to readers as Alice attempts to make sense of Wonderland. Douglas-Fairhurst also does not shy away from confronting the conflicting rumors surrounding Carroll and his relationship with the real Alice. He sifts through the evidence, or lack thereof, and attempts to construct a complete picture of the controversial relationship.
