Gaynor Arnold

Gaynor Arnold writes about comparisons to Lytton Strachey and about the opportunities afforded by 'the small gaps where history is silent, or the points at which facts give way to speculation'. After the success of the Booker longlisted Girl in a Blue Dress about Charles Dickens' marriage, Gaynor Arnold's latest book concerns another 'Eminent Victorian' - Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and his relationship with the child, Alice Liddell.


Joanna Kavenna's novel Come to the Edge was published by Quercus last week, 'a satire about social injustice, rural Britain and the widening gulf between rich and poor'. Here she writes about the attitude readers and publishers have towards comic writing - that it is frequently mistrusted and undervalued despite its significant heritage.
