This work takes us into the Darwin family's private world to tell the story of Charles and Emma Darwin's and their first daughter Annie, who died at the age of ten. When Annie was a baby, Darwin doted on her, but also watched her with his researches in mind, and thought about man's animal origins. As Annie grew into a lively child, Darwin worked secretly on his theory of evolution, but his ideas were just one part of the family's life amid the wealth and poverty of Victorian England. Randal Keynes, Darwin's great-great-grandson and the current guardian of Annie's box, conjures up a world in which great thinkers - including Carlyle, Babbage and George Eliot - were struggling with ideas that were to shake mankind to its core.

Kevin Kearns, the acclaimed author of Dublin Tenement Life and other oral histories, has now prepared a masterly work of reminiscence, celebration and sadness. Based on interviews he has conducted during LDEPual visits to Dublin extending over thirty years, he has drawn together a unique picture of women's lives in the old Dublin slums. Tall town houses, originally built as elegant homes for the rich in the eighteenth century, fell into the hands of avaricious and pitiless landlords who filled them to bursting point with the desperate and impoverished urban proletariat. Conditions were often unspeakably vile with massive over-crowding and utterly inadequate sanitation. Yet out of these dreadful tenements families were reared, households kept together and human dignity maintained. women, the mammies and grannies of the Dublin slums whose voices course through this remarkable book. They tell of how they lived, of the difficulties they faced, of the grinding poverty, the unemployment, the fecklessness of their men folk and always of their heroic struggle to maintain the basic decencies of human life in inhuman conditions.
