Riassunto: Fiction. Art. With collages by Clelia Scala. From the multi-award-winning poet and scholar Steve McCaffery comes ALICE IN PLUNDERLAND, a reimagining of Lewis Carroll's Alice books that will forever change the way readers negotiate Wonderland and its menagerie of characters. Written as part of a larger project called Chiasmus, in which McCaffery will "queer the classics," Plunderland's Alice and all her cohorts become infused with characteristics related to the notion of "plunder"—theft, drug addiction, looting, and civil disorder. Instilled with humour, intelligence, and more than a little bit of absurdity, this retelling of Alice's adventures takes place somewhere other than expected. In the rough-and- tumble world of Plunderland, where theft, drugs, and gangs hold sway, and nary a tea party is to be found, the Cheshire Cat is a junkie from the UK; the King and Queen reign over the land of Cocaine; even Alice's adventures are transformed in her quest for a fix.
"Literature for McCaffery... is not an act of imaginative creation but a procedure, a machine for estranging us from our own language—estranging and thereby recuperating... [Panopticon] is ultimately a profoundly optimistic work, a leap of faith that chooses to revel in the opacity of language... A hypnotizing work."—Full Stop
