Publisher's Summary

What happened to those left behind when Alice went to Wonderland?

From the best-selling author of Wicked....

When Alice fell down the rabbit hole, she found Wonderland as rife with inconsistent rules and abrasive egos as the world she left behind. But how did Victorian Oxford react to Alice's disappearance?

Gregory Maguire turns his 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 mentioned briefly in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, sets out to visit Alice but, arriving a moment too late, 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 bring her safely home from this surreal world below the world.

The White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat and the bloodthirsty Queen of Hearts interrupt their mad tea party to suggest a conundrum: if Eurydice can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus, or if Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. Either way, everything that happens next is After Alice.

Critic Reviews

"Alice doesn't live here anymore - and Maguire has great fun upending the furniture to find out where she's gone. 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-ups - and a lot of fun." (Kirkus)
"Outstanding." (Independent on Wicked)
"Amusing and will delight fans of the previous two volumes." (The Times on A Lion Among Men)
