Has Cambridge ever really been this much fun?,
By A Customer
This review is from: Period Piece - A Cambridge Childhood (Paperback)
Charles Darwin's grand-daughter tells of her eccentric upbringing and her large, talented and idiosyncratic family. A good window onto the life of the upper-class Victorian intelligentsia, her account is consistently affectionate, humorous and light of touch. Whimsical, sane and very funny. Deserves to be better-known.
