JM Barrie first encountered Michael Llewelyn Davies playing with his brothers in Kensington gardens, and the young boy’s unworldly qualities made him the inspiration for Peter Pan. When Michael’s parents – the models for Mr and Mrs Darling – died one after the other, the enigmatic and by now very rich author offered himself as the boy’s guardian. What followed, as this sensitive, meticulously researched biography reveals, was a dark tale of possessive love and Michael’s doomed efforts to free himself.
