Alice Kingsleigh is a young woman at a crossroads. Not knowing what she wants from life, she is being pushed, pulled, strong-armed, and confused into doing what everyone expects of her. A marriage proposal in front of friends and family pushes Alice over the edge and down the rabbit hole into a place she hasn't visited since her father died 10 years before. Only problem is, she's now a very different person, has no memories of Underland, and is somehow still expected to be someone she's not. How can she argue with something that's mapped out in full visual splendor in the prophetic Oraculum? With the help of The Mad Hatter, The White Queen, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Absolom, The Cheshire Cat, and the Bandersnatch, can Alice unlock the mystery of her past and light a path to her future?

Lord of misrule : the autobiography of Christopher Lee by Christopher Lee( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wizard Saruman stands on a high tower, outstretched arms invoking darkness, white hair flowing. The imposing figure of Count Dooku proves more than a match for Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in a deadly light-sabre duel. And to yet another generation, Christopher Lee has become the face of cinema villainy - with key roles in two of the most successful film series ever made." "From Bond baddie Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun to Count Dracula, Lee's remarkable career spanning 56 years has delighted and terrified fans young and old alike. But his life has proved just as strange as his films." "Born into a family descended from papal nobility, Christopher Lee's childhood was full of ghosts and eccentric characters. Written with unforgettable, self-deprecating wit, Lord of Misrule takes us through the ups and downs of a highly unusual home life counterbalanced by his education as a conventional English gentleman, as public school was duly followed by the RAF - and dramatic wartime experiences." "But with the end of World War II, his yearning for something more led him into the bizarre world of British film. His success in Hammer's The Curse of Frankenstein proved to be the start of decades of cinematic triumphs, ranging from Sherlock Holmes to The Wicker Man and Sleepy Hollow." "With a cast list taking in everyone from Orson Welles to Muhammad Ali, locations across Europe, Hollywood and Africa, and packed with mesmerising anecdotes, Lord of Misrule is the perfect vehicle for the astonishing experiences of the man the Guardian describes simply as 'the coolest actor on the planet'."--Jacket
