About the Author
Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, 1832-1898. Alice in Wonderland was first published in 1865.
Ralph Steadman has been a cartoonist since 1956, starting as a caustic observer of Britain's political and social scene. He is well known as the illustrator of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Steadman's work appears regularly in newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone and the Atlantic Monthly, and his many published books include Tales of the Weirrd and Sigmund Freud.
A world where people fall down rabbit holes and confront talking caterpillars is a place where Steadman would feel comfortable. An interesting look at the artist at an earlier stage in his own artistic approach.--Terry Peters "North Shore News" (3/9/2007 12:00:00 AM)
[Steadman's drawings] are still remarkably fresh and unique.-- "White Rabbit Tales [Newsletter of the Lewis Carroll Society of Canada]" (1/1/2002 12:00:00 AM)
Don't count on a bookful of sweet, charming etchings of the shrinking golden girl; this is a somewhat less flattering Alice than the one we've come to know and expect. In over 40 pen and ink illustrations, this Wonderland is more tempestuous; of greater, grittier (and funnier) distortion... when dangerous satirists like Steadman exercise their imaginations and lyric, delirious pens in the slivers and shards of a distorted world -- look out.-- "dingbatmag.com" (11/1/2003 12:00:00 AM)
Ferocious Steadman spin.-- "Toronto Star" (8/31/2003 12:00:00 AM)
Explosive ink drawings... acidic whimsies splash across pages, bringing dear Alice a newly stimulating cup of tea.--David Elliott "San Diego Union-Tribune" (11/30/2003 12:00:00 AM)
Carroll's hall-of-mirrors children's tale and Steadman's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" style make for an eerily perfect fit.--Mary Ann Gwinn "Seattle Times" (12/10/2003 12:00:00 AM)
Alice as you've rarely seen her... fun for all ages... full of the wit and wisdom Carroll originally gave us.--Betsy Daley "Waterbury Republican-American" (12/7/2003 12:00:00 AM)
The familiar cast of characters... takes on a bizarre life of its own with Steadman's black and white illustrations. Children... will be curious, confused yet amazed by what they read and see in this book--Cindly L. Carolan "Children's Literature"
Pair[s] a perpetually suspicious Alice with peculiar creatures that well warrant her chariness.--Clair Martin "Denver Post" (11/30/2003 12:00:00 AM)
