If you read Wicked or saw the Broadway show, you probably know who Gregory Maguire is. He has taken many a classic book and given it a slight twist – round the bend some may say. His next subject, just in time for Alice150 I might add, is After Alice. From the press release:
“AFTER ALICE takes up that question and returns to the summer day on which Alice disappeared into Wonderland, tracing what happened to her sister left behind on an Oxford riverbank, and also what happened when Alice‘s friend Ada follows her down the rabbit hole. Ada, who is mentioned in Carroll’s second chapter, brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect, but central to her concerns are the safe retrieval of Alice from the world below the world.“
Look for After Alice at your local book shop or you can always order from here.
