Still She Haunts Me (2001)
Katie Roiphe

A novel about the life of Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll). I have not read it, and it most certainly focuses more on his affections for Alice than on his mathematics, but I suppose there must be at least some math in it! Please let me know if you've read it.

Contributed by leila

Including the Law of gravity, and other bits of equations; these relate in 'Stll she Haunts me'- to Charles Dodgson's feeling of seperation and his obsession with alice. This is a beautifully written novel, but don't get your hopes up if you're reading this for the mathematical value.
