內容簡介


The latest entrant to the Carrollian maze is Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, who has written The Story of Alice. As someone who teaches English at Magdalen College, Oxford, he is nicely positioned for the task─a stroll away from Christ Church, the college where the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson taught mathematics, and the longtime residence of Lewis Carroll, who was almost, but not quite, the same person. The pair of them tussled, like Tweedledum and Tweedledee. (Anthony Lane New Yorker 2015-06-08)

The Story of Alice is the best book on the myriad enigmas of Carroll’s heart-breaking wonderland I have ever read. (Robert McCrum The Observer 2015-03-22)

Shot through with energy and ideas…The Story of Alice takes us, full throttle, back to the unalloyed passion of reading. This is what it is like to open a book, and to wonder. (Frances Wilson Daily Telegraph 2015-04-04)
