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.
