Product description

Review

Thoughtful and disconcertingly memorable Ada, Alice s best friend, also falls down a rabbit hole into a phantasmagorical realm where she too is tossed and bossed about by strange creatures who delight in clever, frustrating wordplay A feast for the mind readers will ruminate on it long after turning the last page. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Continuing his tradition of rewriting fairy tales with an arch eye and offbeat point of view, Maguire turns his attention to Lewis Carroll and Alice s Adventures in Wonderland. . . . A brilliant and nicely off-kilter reading of the children s classic, retrofitted for grown-upsand a lot of fun. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

[Maguire s] playful vocabulary may be Carroll-esque, but his keen wit is closer to Monty Python, with a fine, unforced sense of play his erudition is a joy, his sense of fun infectious. --Joe Hill, "New York Times Book Review""

Maguire firmly sets Wonderland in time and place and weaves an intricate web of symbolism and allegory The novel is full of the magic, wonder, and fresh twists that his fans have come to expect, and Maguire-and Wonderland-lovers alike will enjoy this fantastic return. --Booklist (starred review)"

In one vexing day, Ada, Lydia, and Miss Armstrong must adapt to deal with their circumstances and find new facets of themselves. Maguire fans should be pleased with his take, at turns clever and philosophical, on the Lewis Carroll classic. --Library Journal"

The author of "Wicked," the beloved retelling of the "Wizard of Oz," has done it again. In honor of Alice and Wonderland s 150th anniversary, Gregory Maguire is offering a new perspective on the classic tale We guarantee you ve never imagined Alice and Wonderland quite like this. --InStyle (Book Club Selection)"

Through means of jokes, puns, and slightly scandalous ditties, combined with the elevated vocabulary that was very common in Victorian literature, Maguire evokes both the time period and Carroll himself this book is a wonderful companion to Lewis Carroll s classic tales. --New York Journal of Books"

AFTER ALICE will inspire readers to think anew about both historical realities and classic fantasies. --Bookreporter.com"

Maguire plays with the ancient archetypes at work in Wonderland while injecting them with fresh perspective. --Entertainment Weekly"

Maguire s style takes on an almost lyrical quality. In "After Alice" Maguire masterfully mimics the quick, witty, and often nonsensical dialogue of Carroll s original story. --Manhattan Book Review"
