Alice in Sussex

alice-in-sussexAlice in Sussex written and illustrated by Nicholas Mahler.

Published by Suhrkamp Verlag Gmbh (Mar 2013). Softback.

German graphic novel in which Alice chases the White Rabbit down his rabbit-hole in search of an illustrated edition of Austrian poet H. C. Artmann’s Frankenstein in Sussex.

From the publisher:

Alice is back in Wonderland. Here she meets the White Rabbit, who leads her down into his rabbit hole in search of an illustrated edition of H. C. Artmann’s Frankenstein in Sussex. Over the course of the novel Alice repeatedly runs into the Rabbit who quotes freely from other literary works by the likes of Herman Melville and E. M. Cioran.

Unlike in Carroll’s classic, this Alice is not in Wonderland but rather in a house deep beneath the ground. On subsequent floors she encounters the famous creations of Lewis Carroll: the Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, and many others. One after the other, these creatures address the terrors of childhood and youth. When Alice reaches the ground floor of the house she comes face to face with Frankenstein’s Monster, whereupon she awakes from her terrifying dream.

Available on Amazon.
