When Alice tumbled down the rabbit hole some 150 years ago, she found a Wonderland as full of abrasive egos and inconsistent rules as the world she'd left behind. But what of that world? How did 1860s Oxford react to Alice's disappearance? The author of Mirror, Mirror and Wicked turns his imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, and underpinnings, offering this inventive spin on Lewis Carroll's enduring tale. Here, Ada is off to visit her friend Alice but arrives a moment too late, and falls down the rabbit hole herself. This new heroine brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect as she embarks on an odyssey to find Alice and take her safely home.
