Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a young girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre.

Steve Fallon's Boston upbringing was as Irish as the come: portraits of the President, the Pope and the Sacred Heart hanging on the wall, a patina of song and booze, and even being taught by his Aunt Alice to bless himself in Gaelic. When, as an adult, he finds his life is generating more questions than answers, he embarks on a journey to the land of his ancestors determined to conquer Gaelic - and to find some personal peace. What starts out as a private odyssey beings to resemble a family road trip when, much to his surprise, Steve is joined by the spirit of his long-departed Aunt Alice. Together they journey to the heart of Irish-speaking Ireland - the Gaeltacht - through pubs and language classes, brushes with the 'little people' and run-ins with other classmates, through Galway, Kerry, Donegal and beyond.
Despite all he learns along the way, Steve's quest raises two fundamental questions. Can Gaelic continue to survive? And just how long is Alice planning to hang around?
