Softcover. 2nd Edn. With Intro' by Colin Wilson. The author's suspect is Lewis Carroll of Alice in Wonderland fame, an Oxford Don whose real name was Charles Ludwig Dodgson. The author presents a very different view of Carroll's "children's books", concluding that the nonsense, however brilliant, was also a mask which concealed Victorian smut, and that this "light-hearted friend" was filled with rage seeking audacious release. "Off with their heads!" cried the hateful Queen of Hearts. Would this become the finally explosive means of retribution for an early life of emotional and sexual abuse by a man never able to escape childhood? Illus., Maps, Notes, Bibliog. and Index. 293pp. trade size softcover. F. with no creasing to covers.
