About Emma Darwin: This is not a Book about Charles Darwin: A writer’s journey through my family

Books about Charles Darwin and his wife and cousin Emma Wedgwood are legion, but when Emma Darwin eventually gave in to the idea that she should write a novel about her family, she knew she wanted to take the road less travelled.

This is Not a Book About Charles Darwin takes the reader on a writer’s journey through the Darwin-Wedgwood-Galton clan, as seen through the lens of Emma’s struggle. Along the way, her wry, witty and honest memoir becomes a brave book about failure – and, above all, a book about writing and how stories are told.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Emma Darwin: This is not a Book about Charles Darwin: A writer’s journey through my family are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
