In a chest of drawers bequeathed by his grandmother, Randal Keynes discovered a child's writing case, which had been in his family for generations. The case belonged to Annie, Charles Darwin's daughter, who died at the age of ten. These hitherto unpublished letters and diaries, written by Darwin in memorial to his daughter during her illness, provide new insight into the life of a man who has been much written about but little understood. 'It is a rare biography that reveals the key emotional moment in its subject's personal and intellectual life so clearly as Randal Keynes does for Charles Darwin ... moving and illuminating' -- Financial Times 'Engrossing ... a biography with a difference' -- Sunday Telegraph 'Remarkable' -- Scotsman
