4.0 out of 5 stars Psychogeography at its best, 10 April 2011
This review is from: Alice in Sunderland: An Entertainment (Hardcover)
This book is about Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland, and his connection with the city of Sunderland. But saying that is like saying Alice in Wonderland is a book about a girl who goes down a rabbit hole. Alice in Sunderland explores the history of the city and the character of the Carroll, but takes in many detours and digressions along the way; a study of William Hogarth's satirical prints, discussions with local artists, the ghost of Sid James, the history of comics, and plenty more besides.

It's a great piece of psychogeography, illustrated in a dizzying mix of styles, full of meandering paths that walk you around, over, under and through the main story. I'm sure it will take many reads to get everything from it, because it's so rich with life and character that you miss the next point of interest while you're still dazzled by the previous one.
