Product description


A refreshing look at such a well-known and loved classic * WordsOfaPaige * Maguire effortlessly leaps between the absurd illusions of Wonderland and the building suspense of the search for the children in antique Oxford... [He] closes in on some big, haunting ideas himself, about the loss of loved ones and religious faith, about cultural and romantic subjugations, and about the evolutionary value of imagination... [A] harvest of delightfully stated observations, [confronting] weighty themes with a light touch and exquisite, lovely language. [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 * New York Times Book Review * Thoughtful and disconcertingly memorable... This is a feast for the mind, and readers will ruminate on it long after turning the last page * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
