What do you do if the Rabbit Hole is your whole life?
One warm July afternoon, eleven year old Alice Liddell demanded a story of her friend Charles Dodgson. Put on the spot, he invented a tale of a little girl, also named Alice, who fell down a rabbit hole and discovered a magical world. The story, published under the name Lewis Carroll, still seizes the imaginations of children everywhere.
But what of Alice? Slipping between her own story and the story she inspired, Phantomwise tells us about Alice, a woman who inspired one of the most captivating tales ever written, and who––whether she wanted to or not––lived in wonderland.
