Up Next-

After Alice by Gregory Maguire

24331115

In this brilliant new work of fiction, Gregory Maguire turns his dazzling imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, underpinnings — and understandings old and new, offering an inventive spin on Carroll’s enduring tale. Ada, a friend of Alice’s mentioned briefly in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is off to visit her friend, but arrives a moment too late — and tumbles down the rabbit hole herself. 

Ada brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect as she embarks on an odyssey to find Alice and see her safely home from this surreal world below the world. If Euridyce can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus, or Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. Either way, everything that happens next is After Alice.

  1. I’m reading “The Kite Runner.” I started it a couple of months ago and somehow I never got to finishing it. Anyone else want to smack the protagonist, Amir? Rotten kid 😦

  2. I just started After Alice, too. I’m reading it along with my friend. I live in AR and she lives in NC. We read the same books and talk about them on the phone. I guess if I don’t get to see her this is the next best thing.

  3. Welcome into the meme. I loved After You, just started reading her books this year. I like the look of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend so just off to look it up on GR.
